About the Author:

Christina Hoff Sommers is a Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute who taught ethics at Clark University and the University of Massachusetts. Her recent books include a second edition of "The War Against Boys" (New York Times Notable Book of the Year) and "One Nation Under Therapy".

Fred Sommers is professor emeritus at Brandeis University. He continues to publish widely on logic, belief, and other philosophical topics. In 2005, MIT Press published a book of essays called "The New Old Logic", which honors Sommers' distinctive contributions to 20th century philosophy.

Review:

"This book fills a very needed niche...The variety of readings in terms of their tone, their scope, and their interdisciplinary make this a very unique and innovative text. The reading selections are all highly appropriate to a larger study of both theories and practical application and, most importantly, they are interesting and engaging. The readings really inspire students to engage in in-depth, critical analysis. The groupings of readings within the chapters are much more thought-provoking than presenting the readings as separate units. The authors don't presume to inform the readers as to which viewpoint is "better" but instead presents a variety of readings encouraging students to truly analyze both the theorists as well as their own personal beliefs." - Lori Rosenthal, Emerson College
