Philosophy: The Latest Answers to the Oldest Questions by Nicholas Fearn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The work of philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle, Russell and Wittgenstein is well known. Philosophy: The State of the Art is the first book to relate, for the general reader, the thoughts of the world's most eminent living philosophers, along with the greatest among the very recently deceased. In the search for higher meaning, Nicholas Fearn has travelled the globe to interview over three dozen of the most eminent intellectuals in the field, from Derek Parfit, David Wiggins and Bernard Williams to Donald Davidson, Richard Rorty and Bernard Henri-Levi. In asking them the three key questions - 'who are we?' 'what do we know?' and 'how should we live?' - Fearn reveals the lastest thinking on what it is to be human; what our limitations and capabilities are; and what our purpose should be. Philosophy: The State of the Art is a brilliant and highly original guide to the latest answers to the oldest questions.
