"Examined Life takes philosophy out of the darkened corners of academia and into the hustle and bustle of the everyday, a visual reminder that great ideas are born through profound engagement with the world around us."
The Examined Life is a collection of philosophical meditations written by Robert Nozick and published in 1989.Having pursued philosophy in an argumentative mode in Anarchy, State, and Utopia, and in an explanatory mode in Philosophical Explanations, his mode in The Examined Life is holistic. Instead of one rational mind coercing another (argumentative mode) or one rational mind explaining possibilities to another (explanatory mode), now a whole person speaks to a whole person. "My concern in writing here is the whole of our being," he writes in the Introduction, "I would like to speak to your whole being, and to write from mine."
