Description

This title presents brilliant fictional journey through Western political philosophy with one of our most original thinkers. "The Curious Enlightenment of Professor Caritat" is a brilliant fictional journey through Western political philosophy with one of our most original thinkers. Professor Caritat, a middle-aged Candide, walks naively through the neighboring countries of Utilitaria, Communitaria and Libertaria, in his quest to find the best of all possible worlds. Cut loose from the confines of his ivory tower, this wandering professor is made to confront the perplexed state of modern thinking in this dazzling comedy of ideas. A Sophie's World for political philosophy with grim Swiftian humour, this is an ideal book to introduce the student and the lay reader to the vast terrain of political thought.
