Product Description

Al Gini is a philosopher who writes for real people about things they actually care about: the meaning of work, moral courage, choice, sin, laughter, and leisure. In Seeking the Truth of Things, he explores his lifelong quest for wisdom. Part memoir, part introduction to key philosophical concepts, this book resoundingly establishes philosophy at the center and not the periphery of the public square.

Publisher's Description

Al Gini, professor of business ethics at Loyola University in Chicago and a popular commentator on Chicago Public Radio, has spent forty years teaching his students to be "respectfully disrespectful" of the ideas of others because ideas that are not challenged by rational thought and introspection tend to be held as, in the words of John Stuart Mill, "dead dogma and not living truth."

In Seeking the Truth of Things, he tries to do what he does in the classroom: serve as a translatordefine, describe, and take the topic apart, raise issues, ask questions, offer some alternatives, and invite readers to decide for themselves, to provoke thought while being a catalyst for moral reasoning. He writes on individual topics, issues, and questions, such as meaning, sin, humor, choice, moral courage, work, leisure, even the importance of travel.
