In the Company of Others
Perspectives on Community, Family, and Culture
Political and public debate recently has centered on issues of community, family and culture. What are the boundaries of community, and why is community important? What constitutes a family, and is it the fundamental unit of a stable society? What difference does feminism make in our lives and in society? How do racial and cultural minorities affect culture as a whole? In the Company of Others brings together new and previously published essays by nine distinguished philosophers, who argue these questions from a variety of perspectives. Presenting traditional and non-traditional approaches, their essays challenge and refine recent thinking on issues of contemporary social and political importance.
