Reviews

Oliver O'Donovan
-- University of Edinburgh
"These three essays by Robert Spaemann will make an excellent first encounter (it is unlikely to be the last) for readers who do not yet know the probing and delicate thought of this distinguished German Catholic moral philosopher, equally at home in the traditional themes of Western Christian philosophy and in the technicalities of contemporary problems posed by technology. Two chapters that distill lines of thought from Spaemann's major works, "Happiness and Benevolence" and "Persons," lead to a memorably stinging critique of brain-death criteria in transplant surgery. This is Christian thoughtfulness at its most engaging."
Holger Zaborowski
-- Catholic University of America
"Robert Spaemann is one of the leading contemporary German philosophers. In many groundbreaking works he has thought about what it means to be a person. Persons, he argues, 'have' their nature and are free; they are not simply their nature. This is why there is a special dignity of the person. This insight is extremely important but often forgotten. In these timely (and very accessible) essays, Spaemann reminds us about who a person is -- and how we can live humanly. Everyone who cares about the human person, not just the professional philosopher, will be grateful for this book!"
