A splendid introduction to the thought of Chantal Delsol, one of the most distinctive and independent thinkers in France today. This volume brings to light her analysis of the human condition in all its drama and nuance. Hall and Seaton have arranged a good marriage, combining a sample of Delsol's writings with incisive commentaries on some of the main themes of her work. Chapeau bas!
(Daniel DiSalvo, The City College of New York)Chantal Delsol’s description of the human condition challenges both proponents of relativism and defenders of 'human nature.' Those concerned with the challenges of late modernity would do well to grapple with her sensitive portrait of universal human experience. Hers is a courageous, hopeful vision that will strike many readers as, quite simply, true. Lucid Mind, Intrepid Spirit is invaluable as an introduction and guide to the thought of Delsol.
