Summary and Info
There are already a couple of good reviews to this book, so I will only add that it is extremely easy to follow and in order to savour it one only needs to be a curious layperson. So my rate is 5 (content) and 3 (pleasure). I also suggest reading the following readable books dealing with ethical /philosophical matters in addition to Boonin's interesting book: a) "Justice. What's the right thing to do" by Michael Sandel; b) "The God Question: What Famous Thinkers from Plato to Dawkins Have Said About the Divine" by Andrew Pessin; c) "Hegel" by Terry Pinkard; d) "The proper study of mankind" by Isaiah Berlin; and e) "Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors" by Susan Sontag. Other interesting books, but no so readable would be the following: 1) "Moral Measures: An Introduction to Ethics West and East" by James Tiles; 2) "Ética como amor propio" by Fernando Savater; 3)"The Shape of Ancient Thought: Comparative Studies in Greek and Indian Philosophies" by Thomas McEvilley; and 4) "Schopenhauer and the Wild Years of Philosophy" by Rüdiger Safranksi.
