Preview

The author of this book has for many years explored the connections between philosophy, ethics, religion, and the social and historical contexts of human experience. The book offers a personal collection of influences as guides to the uses of philosophy in our search for sense and meaning. In short, direct, deeply felt chapters, the book moves from Plato, Plotinus, and the Early Christian theologians to Anselm, Bonaventure, Descartes, Pascal, Leibniz, Hegel, and Levinas. Throughout, it touches on fundamental themes, from reason and faith to freedom and tradition, that knit together the enduring legacy of philosophy as a guide to living wisely.

Keywords: philosophy; ethics; religion; human experience; Hegel; Heidegger; Levinas; meaning; reason; faith
