Synopsis

With The Relevance of Philosophy to Life, eminent American philosopher John Lachs reminds us that philosophy is not merely a remote subject of academic research and discourse, but an ever-changing field which can help us navigate through some of the chaos of late twentieth-century living. It provides a clear-eyed look at important philosophical issues - the primacy of values, rationality and irrationality, society and its discontents, life and death, and the traits of human nature - as related to the human condition in the modern world.
