Editorial Reviews

Review

'She has, perhaps, the sharpest perception of any living thinker of the dangerous extremism that lurks behind so much contemporary scientistic discourse.' - Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times

'One of the sharpest critical pens in the West.' - Times Literary Supplement

'The value of Mary's thinking is that she questions the assumptions and investigates what she calls 'philosophical plumbing' and the role of different ideas in helping map our world...Having the whole of Mary's thinking summarised in one volume is enormously valuable, enabling the reader to access the essence of her approach.'The Science and Medical Network Review

About the Author

Mary Midgely (1919-2018)was a moral philosopher and the author of many books, most recently The Myths We Live By.
