Passion, Death, and Spirituality: The Philosophy of Robert C. Solomon

Author: David Sherman

Additional Authors: Kathleen Higgins

Robert C. Solomon, who died in 2007, was Professor of Philosophy and Quincy Lee Centennial Professor of Business at the University of Texas, USA. As the first book comprehensively to examine the breadth of Solomonís contribution to philosophy, this volume ranks as a vital addition to the literature. It includes a newly published transcript of Solomonís last talk, which responded to Arindam Chakrabarti on the concept of revenge, as well as the considered views of prominent figures in the numerous subfields in which Solomon worked.
