“Ted Honderich makes a powerful case that 'an easy answer is wrong,' so that to find the right answer … will be anything but easy. His inquiry explores some of the most painful and controversial issues of the day. It merits, and will reward, careful reflection.”

“The truth is noisy, and nobody propounds it more vehemently than the political philosopher Ted Honderich … His is a name known to every philosophy student, and in his long career he has been connected to all the leading figures in English philosophy.”


Ted Honderich, one of Britain’s foremost radical philosophers, is Grote Professor Emeritus at University College London and a visiting professor at the University of Bath. He is internationally recognized for his numerous books of philosophy, including Punishment: The Supposed Justifications Revisited, Conservatism, Terrorism for Humanity, After the Terror, and How Free Are You? He is also the editor of the Oxford Companion to Philosophy.
