Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is a liberal education in itself. The friends and students of Leon Kass have written engagingly and searchingly about literature, politics, science, philosophy, and God in the generous, humane, and dignified spirit of their philosopher-physician-scientist mentor. Each and every chapter is a gem; my compliments to the editors for paying such meticulous attention to detail and form. (Peter Augustine Lawler, Berry College)

I don't know that any worldly honor is sufficiently lofty to do justice to the intellectual achievements and public contributions of Leon Kass. If one comes close, however, surely it is this splendid collection of essays by his admirers, associates, and former students. Readers who, like Dr. Kass himself, are true philosophers―lovers of wisdom―will find in this volume much to love. (Robert P. George, Visiting Professor, Harvard Law School; McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University)

A spectacular achievement. Leon Kass's students and friends have done him, and themselves, proud. The consistently high quality of these diverse essays―some of them virtual apples of gold themselves―makes this volume a fitting tribute to a stellar thinker and gifted teacher. (William Kristol, editor, The Weekly Standard)
