"[Phillips takes] philosophy out of the ivory tower and into the street."Los Angeles Times
Christopher Phillips goes to the heart of philosophy and Socratic discourse to discover what we're all looking for: the kind of love that makes life worthwhile. That is, love not defined only as eros, or erotic love, but in all its classical varieties. Love of neighbor, love of country, love of God, love of life, and love of wisdomeach is clarified and invigorated in Phillips's Socratic dialogues with people from all walks of life and from all over the world.
