About the Authors
  • This book considers the role of values in truth seeking, in morality, in aesthetics and also in the spiritual life. We have got beyond the simplistic view that values are simply expressions of feeling, but their precise ontological and epistemological status remains controversial. The essays in this book indicate in an accessible way the state of the discussion as it is at the end of the second millennium.

    • Includes some of the most distinguished names in philosophy
    • Essays are written in an accessible way and will be appreciated by professionals and the educated lay reader
