Text: Philosophy Matters (August 2001, Blackwell)
Philosophy Matters takes on the task of confronting and elucidating important philosophical issues that play their part in guiding our lives today. In particular, it challenges fashionable forms of relativism and materialism, arguing that we cannot discard the role of reason any more than we can do without philosophical presuppositions. The book is written especially for those who may be approaching philosophy for the first time and may be undecided about its relevance.
The Book Forum
The Book Forum introduces a new series of meetings, which aim to present recent philosophy books for discussions by a wider public.
