Atlas vs Straw Dogs
I set out to buy “The Choice of Hercules” <link> a humanist discussion of Duty or Pleasure? This was the legendary choice which faced Hercules. I ended up buying “Straw Dogs” <link> “an exciting, radical work of philosophy, which sets out to challenge our most cherished assumptions about what it means to be human”. Talk about two different ends of the spectrum. How did that happen?
