While studying philosophy at Harvard University, I had the privilege of serving as Editor-in-Chief of the prestigious Harvard Review of Philosophy, an annual journal that has been around since 1991. One of the editing projects during my time there was collecting interviews for an anthology entitled “Philosophers in Conversation: Interviews from the Harvard Review of Philosophy.”
For the first time ever, this anthology gathers thirteen captivating interviews with today’s brightest thinkers, including Hilary Putnam, W.V.O. Quine, John Rawls, Richard Rorty and Stanley Cavell. The interviews give the reader the opportunity to learn more about the personal and professional lives of the philosophers. The subjects in the interviews range from the philosophy of logic to law to metaphysics. Each interview is completed with a photograph
The anthology also features a forward authored by Thomas Scanlon. Other philosophers interviewed in the book include Henry Alison, Alan Dershowitz, Cora Diamond, Umberto Eco, Harvey C. Mansfield, Jr., Alexander Nehemas, Michael Sandel, and Cornel West.
