Your Philosophy and Mine advocates thinking for yourself and ignoring ancient philosophers. It advocates asking questions – the ancient and modern instrument of advancing knowledge and making better choices. It's about conflict between ancient cultural traditions and modern philosophical influences. The book questions Plato, Aquinas, Descartes – and Denish D'Souza. It is skeptical about any utopias and Pollyannish visions, but it admires humanity's attitudinal progress since the Middle Ages and sees much of humanity as able to rise above its worst instincts. The book is about conflicting attitudes concerning morality. It touches briefly on modern thinkers: Dewey, Whitehead, JS Mill, Marx, Popper, John Searle and others. It's about adjusting our political philosophy to experiences and about today's different approaches to acquiring truth.
