There ought to be more general philosophy books like this. Short chapters that openly ponder questions without intending to resolve them.. AC Grayling has perfected the art of a philosophical vignette. ( THE HERALD)
He is a philosopher engaged in what he rightly praises, adding value to life... Here is a book worth talking to. (Ted Honderich, THE GUARDIAN)
... an elegance of style, a sense of humour, and the ability to juxtapose serious musings with wise and wacky facts... and you have an easily digestible form of philosophy. ( TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT)
Grayling is never silly, he has a wonderful fund of apt quotations... Grayling makes one ruminate. ( THE LITERARY REVIEW)
In this new collection A.C. Grayling adds to the variety of discussion and
insight in his previous three essay collections. He returns to questions of
personal ethics and the problems of the contemporary world, but also looks at the lives and ideas of great thinkers, the role of the arts in civilisation, and the need for reason everywhere
Anthony Grayling illustrates in his celebrated accessible prose what each area offers to thought. In a wide-ranging array of illuminating topics, THE HEART OF THINGS shows how far-reaching Grayling's masterly, and timely, commentary on the humanities is to general readers.
