Thomas Nagel is widely recognized as one of the leading American philosophers working today. In this diverse and controversial volume, he collects a number of his most recently published articles and reviews. Concealment and Exposure reflects the unusually catholic range of his many philosophical preoccupations. The first section, Public and Private, focuses on the notion of privacy in the context of social and political issues, such as the impeachment of President Clinton. The second section, Right and Wrong, discusses moral, political and legal theory, and includes pieces on John Rawls, G. A. Cohen, and T. M. Scanlon, among others. The final section, Mind and Reality, features discussions of Richard Rorty, Donald Davidson, and the Sokal hoax, and closes with a substantial new essay on the mind-body problem. Written with characteristic rigor, these pieces reveal the intellectual passion underlying the incisive analysis for which Nagel is known. This latest collection will appeal to philosophers and general readers interested in ethics, the philosophy of mind, and political philosophy.
