Philosophical Book Review

Philosophical Book Review read Nehamas’s book, The Art of Living, as an argument for the view that it “pays” to be an individual. Crucially, in the narrower, philosophical sense Nehamas has in mind, “only some people create themselves or become individuals” (AL 5).

Explain how Nehamas argues for this view; make sure you address what he means by philosophy as an art of living, the distinction between fashioning a biographical and a philosophical/authorial self, and the value of aestheticism. Then, develop what you take to be the 2-3 most significant objections to his position. Finally, adjudicate the debate: which position represents the most defensible position and why?
