Ted Honderich

Philosopher Ted Honderich insightfully relates four shattering current events in this articulate, well-reasoned moral and political analysis.

REVIEWS

"Ted Honderich makes a powerful case that 'an easy answer is wrong,' so that to find the right answer … will be anything but easy. His inquiry explores some of the most painful and controversial issues of the day. It merits, and will reward, careful reflection." —Noam Chomsky

"The truth is noisy, and nobody propounds it more vehemently than the political philosopher Ted Honderich … His is a name known to every philosophy student, and in his long career he has been connected to all the leading figures in English philosophy." —The Independent
