Recapturing the heart-fel The Joy of Philosophy is a return to some of the perennial questions of philosophy--questions about the meaning of life; about death and tragedy; about the respective roles of rationality and passion in the good life; about love, compassion, and revenge; about honesty, deception, and betrayal; and about who we are and how we think about who we are. Recapturing the heart-felt confusion and excitement that originally brings us all to philosophy, internationally renowned teacher and lecturer Robert C.
Solomon offers both a critique of contemporary philosophy and an invitation to engage in philosophy in a different way.
He attempts to save philosophy from itself and its self-imposed diet of thin arguments and logical analysis to recover the richness and complexity of life in thought. Solomon defends the passionate life in contrast to the life of thoughtful contemplation idealized by so many philosophers, attempting to recapture the kind of philosophy that Nietzsche celebrated as a "joyful wisdom.

Sort order. Sep 13, James rated it really liked it Shelves: philosophy. If there is one unifying goal in all the books Robert Solomon published during his life, it appears to have been the rehabilitation of the personal and the emotional in the field of philosophy. Reacting against what he sees as the 'thinness' of Anglo-analytic philosophy i. His passion for philosophy - and his belief that it should be a universal pursuit, not confined by the stifling dictates of establishment philosophers - is, here as elsewhere, frankly infectious.
He has clearly been influenced by the impassioned, rarely methodical philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, whom he quotes liberally throughout this book. Like Nietzsche, Solomon inveighs against that which has been lost to philosophy as the field's focus has narrowed, hermetically sealing itself in a self-reductive language of its own making, and turning its gaze ever more inward.
He also laments the continuing marginalization of the emotions in philosophy in favour of the "coldness" of logic and reason , and its growing incapacity to appeal to, or connect with, its own students. However, this book is not merely a work of criticism, it really does make a strong case for the rehabilitation of "thick" philosophy on its own merits.
