The 32 essays collected in this festschrift bear witness, as well as any single volume could, to the accomplishments of the extraordinary man they honor. Here friends, colleagues, and students make plain the astonishing breadth and depth of Clifford Orwin's philosophic concerns as a scholar and writer. What may be more, they begin to do justice to his lasting influence as a teacher, a teacher at once brilliant, demanding, and generous. -- Robert C. Bartlett, Behrakis Professor of Hellenic Political Thought, Boston College
This collection in honor of Clifford Orwin offers us a rich group of very intelligent essays by his students and colleagues on important issues of classical and modern thought. The essays center on and illuminate the works of Thucydides and the theme of humanity that have guided Professor Orwin's outstanding scholarship. -- Mark Blitz, Fletcher Jones Professor of Political Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College
These 32 chapters, contributed by some of leading students of political philosophy of our time, constitute an unmatched comprehensive and penetrating introduction to the whole of human experience in the West from Thucydides to Mother Teresa. They are abundant testimony to the pedagogical excellence of Clifford Orwin, quite the formidable scholar and astute Canadian public intellectual whose influence for the good has ranged far and wide. -- Peter Augustine Lawler, Berry College
