David Braybrooke is one of the most important figures in North American philosophy. His work in political philosophy is both prolific and significant and he has made a number of contributions to the philosophical corpus with books on topics as diverse as utilitarianism, natural law, and moral objectives. Engaged Philosophy is a collection of original essays written in honour of Braybrooke by some of his colleagues and students at Halifax's Dalhousie University. The collection covers ideas and themes introduced by Braybrooke in his work and a wide range of Braybrooke's interests, ranging from various topics in moral philosophy to issues in the philosophy of social science. It is divided into two main parts: 'Practical Engagement,' which explores some of the practical implications of Braybrooke's work, and 'Theoretical Engagement,' which explores some of the theoretical issues at the heart of his work. Engaged Philosophy is an invaluable collection for anyone who has engaged with Braybrooke's writings or is interested in the future directions North American philosophy might take.
