Value Inquiry Book Series; Volume 315. Central European Value Studies


Scholars of philosophy discuss many aspects of American philosopher John Lachs' (b. 1934) practical philosophy in sections on the practice of philosophizing; philosophical relationships; stoic pragmatism; and anthropology, social ethics, and bioethics. Among specific topics are his relativism in philosophical education as seen from a practical perspective, the unadulterated joy and the pressure of obligations in his philosophy, how stoic his Pentapharmakos is, whether acts of institutions really are fully analyzable into the constituent actions of human beings, and Lachs on happiness and individuality. He himself replies to each essay, and concludes with his own essay on death and self-importance. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
