Riassunto: Ideas can, and do, change the world. Just as Marxism, existentialism, and feminism shaped the last century, so fundamentalism, globalization, and bioethics are transforming our world now. In Ideas that Matter, renowned philosopher A.C. Grayling provides a personal dictionary of the ideas that will shape our world in the decades to come. With customary wit, fire, and erudition, Grayling ranges across the gamut of essential theories, movements, and philosophies—from animal rights to neurophilosophy to war crimes—provoking and elucidating throughout.
Ideas are the cogs that drive history, and in explaining the most complex and influential ones in laymen?s terms, Ideas that Matter will help every engaged citizen better understand it.
L'autore: A.C. Grayling is Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London, and a Supernumerary Fellow of St Anne?s College, Oxford. A regular reviewer for the Literary Review and the Financial Times, he also writes for the Observer, The Economist, Times Literary Supplement, and New Statesman. He lives in London.
