More About the Author

I have been a philosopher and political activist for many years. What interests me more and more are the questions philosophy raises, rather than the answers. What makes a person interesting is that they ask many questions and are deeply aware of the importance of finding answers, while resisting the temptation of putting an end to questioning by defending "the correct answer."

When I teach I have endless questions. I raise questions in my blogs, and when I talk to people I ask them many questions, curious about who they are.

Writing books is for me a way of asking questions about human existence.

What can I say? If you ever met Richard Schmitt you would know why this book is so great! I had the great fortune of taking a course from him recently. I was struck by the fact that what Richard writes about in the past is so very present today in the recruitment of IS terrorist members, Great book for all times!!

Format: Paperback
This book is surprisingly easy to read, well-written and insightful. It doesn't overly belabor any point but also doesn't cut corners either. This is what all philosophy books should be like.
