9780691148816: Finding Oneself in the Other
Review:

" Finding Oneself in the Other works primarily as a memorial to Gerald Allan Cohen, the man, and not his ideas. Both deserve to be remembered. And so the second volume in this trilogy is worth reading, albeit for different reasons than the first." --Peter Stone, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books


"The essays are a joy to read--they are fun, engaging and insightful--and they provide a fascinating perspective on Cohen's philosophical development, on the intellectual context in which he was active, and on the way in which he viewed and experienced the world. Accordingly, they will be of interest not just to those working in moral and political philosophy but to a much broader audience." --Ralf Bader, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"Cohen renders the subject of linguistic morality accessible through a refreshing admixture of humor and diligent explication. . . . Finding Oneself is at once edifying and sincere." --Ross Mittiga, Political Studies Review


"Engaging, perceptive, and empathetic, these writings reveal a more personal side of one of the most influential philosophers of our time." --World Book Industry


" Finding Oneself in the Other is ideal for philosophers and non-philosophers alike. . . . [It] is a valuable asset." --Eugene Baron, Ethical Perspectives

From the Publisher:


This is the second of three volumes of posthumously collected writings of G. A. Cohen, who was one of the leading, and most progressive, figures in contemporary political philosophy. This volume brings together some of Cohen's most personal philosophical and nonphilosophical essays, many of them previously unpublished. Rich in first-person narration, insight, and humor, these pieces vividly demonstrate why Thomas Nagel described Cohen as a "wonderful raconteur."


The nonphilosophical highlight of the book is Cohen's remarkable account of his first trip to India, which includes unforgettable vignettes of encounters with strangers and reflections on poverty and begging. Other biographical pieces include his valedictory lecture at Oxford, in which he describes his philosophical development and offers his impressions of other philosophers, and "Isaiah's Marx, and Mine," a tribute to his mentor Isaiah Berlin. Other essays address such topics as the truth in "small-c conservatism," who can and can't condemn terrorists, and the essence of bullshit. A recurring theme is finding completion in relation to the world of other human beings. Engaging, perceptive, and empathetic, these writings reveal a more personal side of one of the most influential philosophers of our time.
