Overview

Political and public debate recently has centered on issues of community, family and culture. What are the boundaries of community, and why is community important? What constitutes a family, and is it the fundamental unit of a stable society? What difference does feminism make in our lives and in society? How do racial and cultural minorities affect culture as a whole? In the Company of Others brings together new and previously published essays by nine distinguished philosophers, who argue these questions from a variety of perspectives. Presenting traditional and non-traditional approaches, their essays challenge and refine recent thinking on issues of contemporary social and political importance.
