Editorial Reviews

Review


"Clearly written, accessible...[the book contains an] acute, ingenious, and concise disposal of many objections to hedonism...valuable especially for its insightful discussion of many objections and alternatives to hedonism, from Plato to the present, and of Epicurus' attempts at its revision and Feldman's own."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are interested in Ethics and/or Value theory/Axiology; this is a must have. Feldman provides the best formulation and defense of hedonism I have ever seen. Feldman writes in such a clear and entertaining style that you really don't need to have a lot of background to understand what is going on. However, if you are studying seriously, you cannot go wrong with Feldman. He lays out arguments and comments on them in such a way that you cannot help but follow along. He is very fair but also a bit cagey. He may not be explicitly advocating any form of hedonism, but you can figure out where his heart is at.

Hedonists handbook, but unlike Epicurus, there is no power given to the temperate self.
