Philosophers is a very nice coffee-table book of photos of philosophers from Steve Pyke. Each philosopher also provides an answer to the question: “What does philosophy mean to you?” Geoffrey Warnock’s answer is a nice one:
To be clear-headed rather than confused; lucid rather than obscure; rational rather than otherwise; and to be neither more, nor less, sure of things than is justifiable by argument or evidence. That
is worth trying for.
Indeed. But can we live up to this ideal?
