After MacIntyre Critical Perspectives on the Work of Alisdair MacIntyre by John Horton

This is an important full--length study of the work of this controversial thinker by leading political philosophers and social theorists, and includes a reply written by MacIntyre.


a MacIntyre is generally regarded as the most interesting, influential, and provocative figure in moral philosophy today. This timely and wide--ranging collection provides an important assessment of his work.a Jonathan Wolff, University College London a After MacIntyre will be very useful to students: the essays are of a high standard, and it has an excellent bibliography.a The Philosopher a Opens with a comendably clear account by the editors of MacIntyrea s working development; and of the major themes of his later work. It closes with a response from MacIntyre himself together with an appended selected bibliography of his work. Selected it may be, but it is certainly the most extensive apparatus I have seen on MacIntyre and this alone would make it a required acquisition for any library.a Sociology a In this book, Susan Mendus and John Horton have assembled a goodly company of critics to assault the emerging and formidable Thomistic citadel that Alasdair MacIntyre has been gradually building over the last thirteen years ... the book is a superb set of essays which deserve and will repay careful reading and study.a Nick Rengger, University of Bristol a Considering the range of conflicts this volume embodies, it might conceivably be seen as a microcosm of Anglo--American moral and political philosophy in the 1990s: intriguing and chaotic, entertaining and infuriating -- all told, something of a bun--fight, but more instructive than usual. An introductory essay by the editors, John Horton and Susan Mendus, does much to provide an aerial view of the terrain, summarizing both MacIntyrea s recent work and the range of issues debated by contributors.a The Philosophical Quarterly
