The twelve essays in this volume are not only introductions to some of the most influential thinkers in human history but are also invitations for the reader to participate in a living debate.
"What is justice?" "What is truth?" These questions, first posed by Socrates two and a half millennia ago, have lost none of their power to baffle. And while many philosophers have claimed to answer them, ultimately the questions return, challenging us once again.
The authors of these essays are distinguished philosophers in their own right. By choosing a specific aspect of their subject's work, they liberate the great philosophers from textbook cliches -- revealing them in all their freshness and originality.
