Summary
This collection of articles by American philosopher John Lachs includes his discussions of philosophy of mind, medical ethics, his theories of mediation and choice-inclusive facts, and his recent espousal of anti-perfectionism and stoic pragmatism. Lachs acknowledges the complex tension that arises in celebrating human individuality, intelligence, and creativity while being mindful of the real conditions that curb our endeavours. Meaningful and enriching living are not thereby sacrificed but rather contextualized
