John Lachs

Fordham University Press

Animated by attention to diverse desires and ways of viewing the world, Lachs recommends that philosophy departments be as pluralistic as they can be. An appreciation for the variety of philosophical schools of thought, made manifest through the study of its history, provides one ground for pluralism. Another is the fact that philosophy has a scope, ambition, and uncertainty unique among disciplines. Pluralism should play a role in keeping philosophy vital and relevant.
