Praise for The Meaning of Things 'Deeply humane and subtle in its thought as well as being imbued with a rare spirit of enlightenment' Financial Times 'Grayling writes with clarity, elegance and the occasional aphoristic twist...straight alpha material' Sunday Telegraph 'An enthusiastic thinker who embraces humour, common sense and lucidity' Independent --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A.C. Grayling is professor of philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London. He is the author of the acclaimed Among the Dead Cities: The History and Moral Legacy of the WWII Bombing of Civilians in Germany and Japan, Descartes: The Life and Times of a Genius, and Toward the Light of Liberty: The Struggles for Freedom and Rights That Made the Modern Western World. A fellow of the World Economic Forum and past chairman of the human rights organization June Fourth, he contributes frequently to the Times, Financial Times, Economist, New Statesman, and Prospect. Grayling's play "Grace," co-written with Mick Gordon, has played to full houses in London and New York, starring Lynn Redgrave; its central debate over the virtue of religion gives Grayling a strong platform for The Good Book. He lives in London.
