Editorial Reviews


"...offers a conception of social intercourse as a dynamic equilibrium that is reminiscent of Alexander Nehamas's Nietzsche, Life as Literature (CH, Feb'86) and Lewis White Beck's The Actor and the Spectator (CH, Feb'76)... This book is written in an accessible, intelligent style and is wise where others are clever... Highly recommended..."
R Werner, Hamilton College, Choice

Book Description

In How We Get Along, philosopher David Velleman compares our social interactions to the interactions among improvisational actors on stage. He argues that we play ourselves-not artificially but authentically, by doing what would make sense coming from us as we really are. And like improvisational actors, we deal with one another in dual capacities: both as characters within the social drama and as players contributing to the shared performance.
