About the Author:

Philip Hallie was Griffin Professor of Philosophy at Wesleyan University, where he taught for thirty-two years. He died in 1994, leaving this manuscript. That it can now be published is do to the devotion of his wife, Doris Ann Hallie, who contributed an afterword. The foreword by John Compton, fellow philosopher and longtime friend of the author, will help the reader to understand this unusual document in the context of Hallie's life and thought.

Review:

"A powerful, moving text, tough-minded, never sentimental, reminding us of the distinctive voice that was Philip Hallie's and why we return to his work again and again." -- Jean Bethke Elshtain, author of Democracy on Trial

"A wonderful collection of narratives which in their sum offer all of us an opportunity for moral inspiration. Philip Hallie was a person ofgreat wisdom, and these stories tell us what he tried to uphold in his life the significance of a goodness that is lived out day by day." -- Robert ColesA
