About-

For over fifty years Steven M. Cahn has been a prolific contributor to discussions of philosophical and educational issues. In this volume he has chosen his favorite articles from the 1960s to the present, reflecting his long-standing interests in the concept of free will, the rationality of religious belief, the insights of John Dewey, the affirmative action debate, the aims of higher education, and the nature of living well. Also included are several philosophical puzzles and an account of his earliest days as a graduate student.

Professor Cahn is a noted teacher and lecturer, and these essays reflect his skills at explaining complex ideas with clarity and defending challenging positions with cogency. His work demonstrates how philosophical inquiry can be both engaging and enlightening.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Here we have twenty of Steven Cahn’s most probing essays on topics ranging from free will, religious belief, and happiness, to teaching and the meaning of life. Representing work from six decades of his philosophical career, the essays highlight Cahn’s direct and engaging style, making for a collection that is both accessible and rigorous.”

—Robert Talisse, W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy, Vanderbilt University



“This rich collection of essays is for anyone who has ever wondered what the best philosophers do and how their practice can inform their lives and our own. Cahn’s excellent essays engage thoughtful readers on standard philosophical topics from free will to the good life. These articles display how philosophical practice can underwrite a well-lived life.”

—Peter J. Markie, Chancellor’s Professor, Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus, University of Missouri
