Peter Cave

Owning up: What philosophy and philosophers can teach us about ourselves

"’Tis better to be a dissatisfied Socrates than a satisfied pig," wrote John Stuart Mill; indeed, great philosophers often tell us how to live well - witness Socrates, Spinoza, Nietzsche and Sartre, but their remedies conflict. Peter Cave reveals some underlying themes connecting to other writers from Lao Tzu to Lewis Carroll; Sappho to Simone de Beauvoir; Simone Weil to Samuel Beckett.
