Praise for The Meaning of Things
'Deeply humane and subtle in its thought as well as being imbued with a rare spirit of enlightenment' ( Financial Times)
'Grayling writes with clarity, elegance and the occasional aphoristic twist...straight alpha material' ( Sunday Telegraph)
'An enthusiastic thinker who embraces humour, common sense and lucidity' ( Independent)
Designed to be read as narrative and also to be dipped into for inspiration, encouragement and consolation, The Good Book offers a thoughtful, non-religious alternative to the many people who do not follow one of the world's great religions. Instead, going back to traditions older than Christianity, and far richer and more various, including the non-theistic philosophical and literary schools of the great civilisations of both West and East, from the Greek philosophy of classical antiquity and its contemporaneous Confucian, Mencian and Mohist schools in China, down through classical Rome, the flourishing of Indian and Arab worlds, the European Renaissance and Enlightenment, the worldwide scientific discoveries of the 19th and 20th centuries to the present, Grayling collects, edits, rearranges and organises the collective secular wisdom of the world in one highly readable volume.
