Raymond Geuss's Outside Ethics (PUP) has been hanging around my TBR-pile for a few months now. Monday Musing: Liberalism's Loss of the Skeptical Spirit, a nice piece on 3 Quarks Daily yesterday, has pushed it up to right near the top:
I recently completed Raymond Geuss’ Outside Ethics, a collection of essays from various talks on contemporary Western political and moral philosophy. I’ve been a fan of Geuss’ work ever since reading his very thin but insightful book The Idea of a Critical Theory, which Ram once described as lacking an unnecessary word, and after taking his course on continental political thought in my first year of graduate school. For the most part, Geuss' concerns have been on continental philosophy and continental thinkers, to which he brings an (for lack of a better phrase) Anglo-American analytic clarity.
