Summary: "The great merit of Taylor's brief, non-technical, powerful book...is the vigour with which he restates the point which Hegel (and later Dewey) urged against Rousseau and Kant: that we are only individuals in so far as we are social...Being authentic, being faithful to ourselves, is being faithful to something which was produced in collaboration with a lot of other people...The core of Taylor's argument is a vigorous and entirely successful criticism of two inte ...show morertwined bad ideas: that you are wonderful just because you are you, and that `respect for difference' requires you to respect every human being, and every human culture--no matter how vicious or stupid." --Richard Rorty, London Review of Books "Charles Taylor is a philosopher of broad reach and many talents, but his most striking talent is a gift for interpreting different traditions, cultures and philosophies to one another...[This book is] full of good things." --Alan Ryan, New York Times Book Review "Taylor's crystalline insights rescue us from the plague on both houses in the debate over modernity and its discontents." --Joseph Coates, Chicago Tribune "Reading Taylor's unexpected but always perceptive judgments on modernity, one becomes forcefully aware of the critical potential of that old philosophical injunction `know thyself'. This little book points to the importance of public reflection and debate about who we are. It also forcefully draws attention to their absence from our public culture." --Ben Rogers, Manchester Guardian "These lectures provide not only an inviting summary of [Taylor's] recent thought but also, in many ways, a more revealing statement of his underlying convictions. Taylor's own voice comes through clearly in this book--the voice of a philosophically reflective and hermeneutically rooted cultural critic." --Joel Anderson, Philosophy and Social Criticism "Charles Taylor's Ethics of Authenticity is a concise, clear discussion reexamining these and closely related 'malaises' of modernity while focusing on meaning, its importance in our lives, and why our attempts to find our identities matter--whether these identities be personal, social, political, aesthetic, or scientific. He affirms the moral ground underlying modern individualism, but challenges us to go beyond relativism to pluralism." --Paul Roebuck, Ethics, Place and Environment ...show less
