Reissued in a fantastic new series look The Meaning of Things has sold 70,000 in paperback A.C. Grayling has become one of Britain's top intellectual figures 'Grayling writes with clarity, elegance and the occasional aphoristic twist, conscious of standing in a long tradition that runs from Montaigne and Bacon back to Emerson and Thoreau' Sunday Telegraph 'Grayling is particularly good at illuminating the knottiness of moral discourse...accessible and intelligent, this collection offers some interesting starting points for philosophical reflection rather than being a potted history of other people's ideas' Sunday Times
Anthony Grayling teaches philosophy at Birkbeck College, London and is a Fellow of St Anne's, Oxford. He reviews regularly in the Financial Times. He has a regular column in Prospect and The Times.
I find the clarity of his thinking so refreshing. -- Pam Ferris
