“Professor Cahn’s mastery of the art of philosophical writing shines on every page of this superb volume. Its capstone is an autobiographical essay charting his fascinating academic and professional journey.”

“These essays are clear and concise gems. They are always straightforward, controversial, and convincing.”
—Alan H. Goldman, College of William and Mary
"Steven M. Cahn, for fifty years a force in philosophy and higher education, offers these wise reflections on happiness, academic life, belief in God, the politics of hiring in departments, affirmative action, and the path of his own career. A thoroughly enjoyable read by a professor who has been at the center of many important, contemporary controversies and who helped shape some of the key events."
