Comments Difference of Man and the Difference It Makes

  1. This philosophical analysis of the problem of human nature casts a strong and rare light on one of the most important questions ever asked.What is this thing called Man In the first place he s an enigma, or, in the words of Jacob Needleman, partly divine and partly an animal that reads From ancient times man has been exalted as a being above all the other animals, holding mastery over the rest of creation by virtue of his intellectual power and his special relationship with God or, anyway, with [...]


  2. The rigor and precision of Adler s thought is certainly to be admired However his complete disavowal of the mental and emotional capacities of non human animals leads one to wonder if he were bitten by a baby chick at age 4 and spent the rest of his days sequestered in a library out of fear of the hoot owl outside Such isolation breeds hubris much as mildew collects on an old damp rag view spoiler Before making any precepts, the reader would do well to be aware of certain epistemological traps p [...]


  3. At first I really appreciated the very structured and thorough approach this book took However, as it became clear that Adler was not going to really question any preconceptions or common beliefs he just came off as pretentious and sophomoric My one star rating may be a bit harsh given how long ago it was written, but a lot of this book is out of date and even the pure philosophy parts aren t worth reading.


  4. Excellent book, but written with careful attention to detail, with rigorous intellectual scrutiny, so not for the casual reader Better if the reader knows something of the questions Adler addresses, and understands something about how philosophical questions are explored.
