From the Inside Flap
"This is not just a book of applied philosophy. It inserts philosophy into real-world disputes, finding new forms of balance between ideas and people who contend but who nevertheless have to live with one another. Iannone challenges us to think that philosophy itself will not be the same after extensive practice of this kind: It will be more vigorous as well as more useful" --David Braybrooke, The Centennial Commission Chair in the Liberal Arts, University of Texas at Austin
"Philosophical Ecologies is Iannone's best book to date . . . Rather than merely bringing ready-made philosophic 'theory' to bear on 'practical' problems, it endeavors to show how specific skills and techniques of the philosopher can . . . reduce to manageable proportions a range of seemingly intractable present-day problems associated with contemporary multiculturalism and value incommensurability." --Suzanne Stern-Gillet, Professor of Philosophy, Bolton Institute
