Full description for The Essential Mary Midgley
Feared and admired in equal measure, Mary Midgley has carefully yet profoundly challenged many of the scientific and moral orthodoxies of the twentieth century. The Essential Mary Midgley collects for the first time the very best of this famous philosopher's work, described by the Financial Times as 'common sense philosophy of the highest order'. This anthology includes carefully chosen selections from her best-selling books, including Wickedness , Beast and Man , Science and Poetry, and The Myths We Live By . It provides a superb and eminently accessible insight into questions she has returned to again and again in her renowned sharp prose, from the roots of human nature, reason and imagination, to the myths of science and the importance of holism in thinking about science and the environment. The Essential Mary Midgley offers an unrivalled introduction to a great philosopher and a brilliant writer, and also includes a specially written foreword by James Lovelock.
