This book offers an in-depth exploration of the work of Alasdair MacIntyre, one of the leading social and ethical philosophers of our time. Because MacIntyre's historical and philosophical arguments exhibit great erudition and a dense style, his work is sometimes not so accessible to readers who might otherwise find his thought enlightening. Bruce Ballard provides a great service in "Understanding MacIntyre," clearly explaining the philosopher's basic tenets as set forth in the works "After Virtue, Whose Justice? Which Rationality?" and "Three Rival Versions of Moral Enquiry". A thorough summary of MacIntyre's philosophy is followed by a critical discussion of his ideas and a comparison of his work with that of other philosophers. "Understanding MacIntyre" is a seminal study that will contribute greatly to our understanding of contemporary philosophy.   show more
