MEDIA REVIEWS
I recently used The Good Life for my course Philosophy Through Film. I was pleasantly surprised by the development of the students' excitement for and interest in the assigned readings. Throughout the semester the students commented on the helpfulness of the editor's introductions for each reading, and they became increasingly interested in philosophy. The book was a huge success! --Megan Altman, Florida Gulf Coast University
. . . a marvelously wide-ranging selection of philosophers' attempts to define the good life. . . . Making selections for a modest-sized volume on such an issue is a daunting task, requiring negotiating the Scylla of breadth but superficiality and the Charybdis of detail but narrowness. On this score one has to say Guignon has done just about as well as can be done. . . . The editor's introductions to each selection are quite helpful and accurate. . . . [An] excellent anthology that undergraduate philosophy teachers will no doubt find extremely useful in the classroom. --Whitley R. P. Kaufman, Philosophy in Review
