From the Inside Flap:

In this thought-provoking and brilliant follow-up to A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues, André Comte-Sponville introduces twelve philosophical concepts, in what is sure to be another international bestseller.

About the Author:

Professor of Philosophy at the Sorbonne, Andre Comte-Sponville is the author of a number of books, including the international bestseller A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues, which has been translated into 24 languages. In a country that reveres philosophers, Comte-Sponville is latest in a line of French star philosophers that runs from Sartre, through Derrida, Finkielkraut and Berni-Henry Levy. Unlike the last three, his accessibility and refusal to fly in the face of common sense has made him famous across Europe.
