Pamphlet. Very Good with no dust jacket. Item #3725
Rear cover label peel, otherwise slight wear. Crisp paperback stapled pamphlet. ; On Being Human "is a summary of philosophical insights useful to the general reader who looks diligently at our mission of being human. As a conscientious scholar, Medicus gave an account of his sources in almost five hundred notes. ... A helpful appendix must be fairly short. I have translated passages from less than a hundred of the philosophical sources indicated by Medicus, but I am quoting some of them at length. ... Should this Appendix fall in the hands of a reader who does not have Medicus' book On Being Human, he might yet find it profitable to use it as a philosophical glossary which furnishes original definitions of terms often used vaguely. Let him consult the Index on such terms as, for instance: Absolute, death of God, doubt, God, life, mystery, noumenon, religion, speculation, the state, transcendental." ; 95 pages.
