Abstract

In a series of original and perceptive philosophical essays -- including those on "Birth and Death," "Virtue and Human Flourishing," 'The Need to Sleep," "Sex," "Truth and Reality," "Vanity and Destiny," and "The Fear of Death" -- the author reflects on the nature of morality and its relation to experience, on the individual mind and its place in philosophy, and on the strangeness of life itself. Drawing widely on literature and philosophy -- from Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, George Eliot, Kafka, Jean-Paul Sartre, D. H. Lawrence, and others -- "Living Philosophy" has some affinities with the philosophy practised by such figures as Martha Nussbaum, Stanley Cavell, and Peter Winch.
