Abstract:

"This wide-ranging collection of Susan Haack's new and recent essays offers applied philosophy in a new key and a fresh voice - subtle, penetrating analyses of vital issues about science, society, religion, law, literature, even about what makes a life meaningful." "Whether she is telling the "sad, sleazy saga" of a drug company's efforts to suppress the unfavorable results of a clinical trial it had funded, disentangling the many senses of "coherent," or reflecting on the growth of intellectual character, Haack writes with the clarity, verve, and wit her readers have come to expect."--Jacket.
