提到Brian Leiter,哲学圈的朋友恐怕不会陌生。在这里,先给大家做个简要的介绍。Leiter先生出生于1963年,是一位美国哲学家,目前任教于芝加哥大学。他是芝加哥大学法律、哲学和人类价值中心的创建者,也是Philosophical Gourmet Report的发起人,在法律和哲学圈都有比较大的影响。在2014年年末的时候,他在自己的博客发起一个问题讨论:Best philosophy books/articles you read this year? 随后,有许多学者参与讨论,分享了自己的见解。相信,大家能够从这个分享中获得不少有益的参考。在本文中,我仅为大家摘取John Gardner和Thom Brooks的分享。更多精彩内容,欢迎大家点击本页面左下角的“阅读原文”。当然,如果您点不开,很可能是被墙了。为了保险起见,附上链接,便于大家搜索。 

 

2014年,哲学家们的圈内荐书

摘自Leiter Reports: A Philosophy Blog

1. John Gardner推荐的两本书:

First, G.A. Cohen’s posthumously published Lectures on the History of Moral and Political Philosophy (Princeton 2014). I occasionally went to some of these lectures back in the day. The book is naturally not an adequate substitute for a performance by Jerry himself, who is often in my thoughts and sorely missed. Yet the book is a wonderful reminder of and testament to the man’s amazing scholarly range, philosophical acuity, and literary facility (not to mention his legendary comic talent).

Another no-less-wonderful blast from the past, albeit temperamentally very different, is Bernard Williams’ Essays and Reviews 1959-2002 (Princeton 2014). Everything is lined up chronologically and you can read it as a kind of intellectual autobiography delivered from beyond the grave. Williams is not exactly comic but he is always wry, and often mischievous. There is lots of good political analysis as well as classic philosophical moves, including good clean versions of his well-known takes on utilitarianism and Kantian ethics. And a lot of unsqueamish demolition. Chapter 61, in particular, is surely the kind of review that (on occasions) we would all have liked to write.

2.Thom Brooks推荐的一本书

Pleasantly surprised to find my Punishment noted above! My favourite of the year must be Martha Nussbaum’s Political Emotions – an absolutely superb tour de force.
