In this powerful re-examination of the purpose and direction of philosophy for the next century, Anthony OHear engages with our most pressing questions: Is there knowledge outside of science? Does religion still have meaning and coherence today?MoreIn this powerful re-examination of the purpose and direction of philosophy for the next century, Anthony OHear engages with our most pressing questions: Is there knowledge outside of science? Does religion still have meaning and coherence today? What is beauty, and why do so few contemporary artists believe in it?

Contemporary philosophy mostly divides into the technical approach of the Anglo-Americans, which is inaccessible to most, and the oracular obscurantism of the Continental approach, which does violence to sense and reason.OHear argues that philosophy should work with the grain of tradition and commonsense to understand politics, religion, aesthetics, and the vast number of ethical questions that will continue to arise as the scientific and technical revolution accelerates.

Giving up philosophys special position means giving up our best chances of thinking and acting wisely. In making a strong case for the relevance of philosophy, Anthony OHear presents a coherent and compelling vision for recovering wisdom in our time.
