Description: For almost the entire twentieth century, the discipline of philosophy has been in a quandary in attempting to identify and define its proper role in the contemporary world. During the past twenty-five years, it has fallen on bad days in academe, often reduced to overly technical ramblings or postmodernist rants. Its demise has been predicted, if not reported, for years.

Finally, in this provocative and controversial book, Robert Greene does the dirty deed and puts philosophy out of its misery, issuing a coup de grace to the current ill-conceived, skeptical discipline. But then he breathes life into the great interdisciplinary tradition of philosophers, freeing them from the straitjacket of the mind-body dualism and "the problem of knowledge".

The heart of the book is a long chapter and two appendices expounding the brilliance of Aristotle on language, the soul, and mind..

The Death and Life of Philosophy not only presents the great thinkers of the past in a new light, but also satirizes the philosophy professors of today, putting their work and even their aims into perspective in a highly readable and engaging manner.
