Praise for Tales of Good and Evil, Help and Harm

"This [is a] beautiful book, written with what might be called disciplined moral passion...Crisp, plain-spoken, and forceful prose exemplifies this fine summary of one of those very rare lives spent immersed intellectually and personally, in issues of active moral engagement."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"This is the work of a sensitive and imaginative philosopher who spent much of his life trying to understand how acts of moral heroism are possible. Hallie's account of such acts is both moving and illuminating."
--Richard Rorty, professor of philosophy, University of Virginia

"This is a grand, generous, big-hearted book...This book will restore your faith that goodness really exists, and sometimes even wins."
--Robert D. Richardson, Jr., author of Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind and Emerson: The Mind of Fire

"A Powerful, moving text, tough-minded, never sentimental, reminding us of the distinctive voice that was Philip Hallie's and why we return to his work again and again."
--Jean Bethke Elshtain, author of Democracy of Trail

About the Author:

Philip Hallie was Griffin Professor of Philosophy at Wesleyan University, where he taught for thirty-two years. He died in 1994, leaving this manuscript. That it can now be published is do to the devotion of his wife, Doris Ann Hallie, who contributed an afterword. The foreword by John Compton, fellow philosopher and longtime friend of the author, will help the reader to understand this unusual document in the context of Hallie's life and thought.

Review:

"A powerful, moving text, tough-minded, never sentimental, reminding us of the distinctive voice that was Philip Hallie's and why we return to his work again and again." -- Jean Bethke Elshtain, author of Democracy on Trial

"A wonderful collection of narratives which in their sum offer all of us an opportunity for moral inspiration. Philip Hallie was a person ofgreat wisdom, and these stories tell us what he tried to uphold in his life the significance of a goodness that is lived out day by day." -- Robert ColesA
