Notes

Description
"In this personal and probing book, the acclaimed 'philosopher for the people' shares lessons gleaned from his intimate and often unexpected encounters with uncommonly perceptive human beings both living and long deceased, in the form of weary travelers and some of history’s greatest thinkers, from Heraclitus to Dr. Cornel West. Along the way, he charts a pathway for sculpting what Shakespeare describes as a 'soul of goodness,' which meshes with Plato’s paradigm-shattering conception of the 'healthiness of soul.' For those struggling to overcome the hopelessness that can result from grievous loss, setback, or betrayal – what Phillips’ touchstone Percy Blythe Shelley calls life circumstances 'darker than death or night' – the author spotlights, with philosophical prescriptions both timely and timeless, how to cultivate a 'Socratic spirit' that leads to renewed love, forbearance, and hope at the other end of the tunnel."--publisher's website.
