Good Without God? by Graeme Hunter

Good Without God?

The Art of Life
by John Kekes
Ithaca/London: Cornell University Press, 2002
(267 pages; $29.95, hardcover)

reviewed by Graeme Hunter

During the early decades of the twentieth century philosophy became a specialized subject, pursued by professionals and preoccupied with technical problems and method. This change resulted in the elimination of much obscurity and dilettantism and raised the standard of clarity and precision demanded of philosophical works. It also resulted in the alienation of those who traditionally turned to philosophy for help with their reflections but who had no interest in technicalities. This book is addressed to them.”
