Product description


This book is extremely thought-provoking, readable, and clear. It will appeal to readers of all ages who ponder what it is to be a human being. --Ladelle McWhorter, University of Richmond

On reading this book, I kept thinking that May must be a really great teacher of philosophy. And what I might particularly appeal to an inexperienced philosophy reader is the deep sense of humility the author displays throughout the book. Finally, I was definitely taken by the author s tremendous sense of humor. As it is well-known, humor is not a very common currency among philosophers. This is precisely why May s sharp irony (safely doubled with self-irony), satire, incisiveness, as well as his constant amused gaze at the humorous side of life renders this a truly rare philosophy book. --Costica Bradatan, PhD, Practical Philosophy

About the Author

Todd May is Professor of Philosophy at Clemson University and the author of four books previously published by Penn State Press, most recently Reconsidering Difference: Nancy, Derrida, Levinas, Deleuze (1997).
