Summary
Philosophies, whether genuine or spurious, are not usually adopted because of their conceptual, empirical, or moral merits, but because of tradition, political interests, or even temperament–none of which is a good reason. The present book argues for a precise criterion: A philosophy is worth what it helps learn, act, conserve our common heritage, and get along with fellow humans
