Feared and admired in equal measure, Mary Midgley has carefully yet profoundly challenged many of the scientific and moral orthodoxies of the twentieth century. The Essential Mary Midgley collects for the first time the very best of this famous philosopher's work, described by the Financial Times as 'common sense philosophy of the highest order'. This unrivalled introduction to a great philosopher and brilliant writer incorporates carefully selected excerpts from Mary Midgley's bestselling books, including Wickedness, Beast and Man, Science and Poetry, and The Myths We Live By. With a specially written foreword by James Lovelock, this classic text presents a superb and eminently readable insight into questions she has returned to time and again in her renowned sharp prose. This anthology discusses major topics, such as the roots of human nature, reason and imagination, the myths of science and the importance of holism in thinking about science and the environment.

Talk about The Essential Mary Midgley


Marilbine
Mary Midgley is simply the best critic of science I know. And given science's faustian bargain with corporate and crony capitalism, in which science has become our modern magic, science desperately needs good critics. Critics who actually understand what science is.
Nalmetus
Midgley is a philosopher one can understand, she is a philosopher who has a heart, she is a philosopher who argues her case from basics all the way through, in plain English, she is a philospher who brings all the flights of fancy and fantasy that so many philosophers get lost in back to earth with a bump. Like Virginia Woolf, she steps right over the b*llsh*t from which cocooned males are busily building towers into the clouds
Uaha
She reminds me that we need to think critically in morality too.
