Wisdom Won from Illness: Essays in Philosophy and Psychoanalysis

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Wisdom Won from Illness brings into conversation two fields of humane inquiry-psychoanalysis and moral philosophy-that seem to have little to say to each other but which, taken together, form a basis for engaged ethical thought about how to live. Can reason absorb the psyche's nonrational elements into a whole conception of the flourishing, fully realized human being? Without a good answer to that question, Lear says, philosophy is cut from its moorings in human life. 

Condition: Dustjacket shelfworn, scuffed and scratched; boards lightly shelfworn. Some pencil underlining and annotations to textblock, but all pages clearly readable and binding tight.
