New Century Philosophy
A&C Black, 02.08.2001 - 164 Seiten
In this powerful re-examination of the purpose and direction of philosophy for the new century O'Hear engages with our most pressing questions. Is there knowledge outside of science? Does religion still have meaning and coherence today? What is beauty and why do so few contemporary artists believe in it? In making a strong case for the relevance of philosophy O'Hear presents a coherent and compelling vision for recovering wisdom in our time.
