Vehement Passions, Paperback (September 2003)
Breaking off the ordinary flow of experience, the passions create a state of exception. Intense states have come to be seen as symptoms of pathology. From Aristotle to Hume to contemporary biology, this work finds evidence that the passions have defined a core of human nature no less important than reason or desire.
Goodness and Advice, Paperback (January 2003)
How should we live? What do we owe to other people? This book explores how we should go about answering such fundamental questions.
Still the New World, Paperback (September 2000)» View all books by Philip Fisher
