Description

The pioneering moral philosopher Annette Baier presents a series of new and recent essays in ethics, broadly conceived to include both engagements with other philosophers and personal meditations on life. Baier's unique voice and insight illuminate topics ranging from patriotism and future generations to honesty, trust, hope, and friendship.

The essays are very well written, often quietly funny, exceptionally wide-ranging, and full of the most unexpected and illuminating ideas, connections, and questions. They are engaging, interesting, often impassioned and enjoyable. Both their style and content reflect a clear literary interest, and that is partly why they make such good reading.

Auteur

Annette Baier is Professor Emerita of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh.
