About this title

Synopsis:

Mark Kingwell, John Ralston Saul, Jan Zwicky, Thomas Hurka, Will Kymlicka, Graeme Hunter, Paul and Patricia Churchland, Michel Seymour, Arthur Schafer, Charles Taylor-the list of Canadian philosophers who have made important contributions to public debate is a long one. Here, in a single volume we find their views on topics ranging from free speech to free trade, from science to citizenship, from terrorism to tyranny, and from ethics to the environment.

In the Agora celebrates the unique perspectives, distinctive voices, and important contributions of Canadian philosophers by bringing together some of the nations' top minds to speak candidly on issues of popular public debate. Following a foreword by John Ralston Saul, editors Andrew D. Irvine and John S. Russell have carefully collected over a hundred essays into an accessible, controversial, and lively book that delves into any number of significant issues.

A spirited and engaging read, In the Agora effectively illustrates how Canadian philosophers have contributed to public discourse and enriched our world. It is a collection that is sure to prompt both interest and debate.
