Taylor really lives up to the hype although I must say as someone influenced by a lot of folks themselves influenced by Taylor the book did feel like a bit of a slog at parts One of the basic theses is to affirm value pluralism particularly values prone to conflicting with one another But Taylor s contribution in my estimation is to bring the depth of intellectual genealogy to these values or moral sources He paints a vivid picture of how these moral sources have evolved and how they interact and borrow from one another often implicitly and surreptitiously I buy into this overall view but I m skeptical of the view Taylor never uite says but seems to imply that there was some earlier time when actually living individuals had conflict free moral sources or moral sources with full buy inAmong the ancients Taylor barely mentions Aristotle I find this puzzling since his own approach seems broadly Aristotelian based on its contextual pluralism

I just finished this magnificent book this week Although it took me a couple of years to read because of my schedule it completely rearranged my mental furniture Not many books can do that for anyone At least for anyone my age HahaIn any case Taylor examines the history of ideas and the sources for our sense of who it is that we are He finds these sources in a variety of places and the problem is that we sometimes view the contemporary sources to be in conflict However he believes that our sense of ourselves is actually constituted by many of these seemingly conflicting sourcesThus disengaged reason which helps with science and philosophy and expressive self fulfillment as you might think of in Romanticism and then psychologyself help stuff work together to help us create our notions of ourselves We also have many notions and influences from the people Taylor admits are our contemporaries the Victorians Ouch Yet we continue to rejoice in their notions of universal benevolence and justice Meanwhile Protestant notions about the importance of how we do things the beauty of everyday life is important to us as a whole than the aristocratic warrior culture it left behind This is an amazing book While I dispute that the era of the aristocrat warrior mentality is over I do agree that Taylor s ultimate conclusion that we createadjust to the culture our notion of what is good and create within that structure a narrative about how we reach closer to that good is a redemptive viewOh and finally Taylor predicted any number of contemporary controversies from neo conservatives their sympathies are narrow he says to the blatantly incorrect stories that are necessary to create a sense of nationalism as we see with ScaliaStunning

Don t tell my dissertation advisers that I hadn t read this before I finished they might revoke my degree On the other hand they might say well you don t really need to read this unless you re a convinced naturalistprocedural ethicistpurveyor of socio biology Which you re not And this is the problem Like reading Wittgenstein when you re not already an analytic philosopher this is only going to blow your mind if you haven t read any 20th century philosophy and are a little uncomfortable with your Lockean beliefs If you re comfortable with them you ll shrug and say who gives a toss The first 4 chapters look at late 20th century anglo philosophical ethics basically stuff that follows from utilitarianism Rawls or Nozick Oddly it s much interesting than the following 21 chapters CT is better when he s engaging with arguments rather than when he s laying out his tremendous analysis of the modern self over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again all in slightly different permutations and all strictly obeying the rule of three There are three characteristics of everything He nearly slips up when counting the frontiers of modern ethical thought on page 317 he tells us there are two of them by 319 he s come to his senses and added in a third Phew Close call He then reverts still on 319 back to the claim that there are two Do we have an editor in the house Aside from being an execrable organizer of his own thought and a long winded know it all Taylor is uite readable He thinks about important issues eg just how important is the philosophical articulation of the self and is willing to take a stand or two he rejects the twin ideas that we re contextless instrumental deciders and that we re nothing He s good on the importance of hermeneutics for understanding human life He s very bad though on separating his own axe grinding from his historical work although he claims to be giving us an interpretation of the modern self there s an awful lot of judgement against rationalism subjectivism and so on This wouldn t matter if he didn t conclude that knowing about these sources of the self can empower us to live this identity fully Since he s almost without exception described our identity as bad why empower us His readings of modernist texts are terrible often there s no sign that he s even read the poems he describes The same goes for many of the thinkers he discusses most notably Adorno Taylor has clearly read Habermas on Adorno but that s like reading Obama s Goodreads review of Romney s book This all sounds bad but chapters 1 4 9 and 19 21 are well worth reading Taylor s book is a cornerstone of much current philosophical thought and deserves its reputation as a classic But it needs an abridgement if people are going to keep reading it
