The work of the classic philosophers is well known. But where can the general reader discover what today's philosophers believe about what it is to be a human being? In his serious, challenging, and remarkably accessible new book, Nicholas Fearn turns to contemporary philosophers to ask the age old questions: Who am I? What do I know? What should I do? In a work that is part travelogue, part search for higher meaning, Fearn consults with thinkers from around the world (including John Searle, Martha Nussbaum, Daniel Dennett, Jacques Derrida, among many others) to create an impressive survey of recent thought. Variously, they believe that free will, identity, and consciousness are not what they seem; that the difference between virtue and wickedness can be a matter of sheer luck; and that, one day, we will all be vegetarians. Kearn discovers that the topics haven't changed, though our world has. Or has it? Moving deftly from pop culture to the writings of Plato,
The Latest Answers to the Oldest Questions
is a brilliant and entertaining guide to the current state of the philosophical art.
