Q & A with Kwame Anthony Appiah

appiah.jpgWe were honored to have philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah speak at our store this week about his new book, Experiments in Ethics. We didn’t have a lot of time to chat with him after the event, but he took a few moments to tell us what he has been reading lately:

I am currently re-reading God’s Crucible: Islam and the Making of Europe, 570-1215. Recently I have also enjoyed Hobbes and Republican Liberty (February 2008, Cambridge University Press), and also The Rest is Noise. As far as forthcoming titles that I’m looking forward to reading — whatever Amartya Sen publishes next, whatever it is!
