The dialogue, combining informality with elements of drama, has been a favored form with philosophers since Plato; it lays bare the discussion, argument, and criticism which are part of the very subject-matter of philosophy. In this book some of the most distinguished philosophers in present-day Britain carry on the best traditions of the form. A.J. Ayer, Karl Popper, Gilbert Ryle and Peter Strawson, in dialogue with Bryan Magee, give authoritative introductions to their own work, even to the extent of saying what they think has been wrong with it
Ultimate questions by Bryan Magee( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We human beings had no say in existing, we just opened our eyes and found ourselves here. We have a fundamental need to understand who we are and the world we live in. Reason takes us a long way, but mystery remains. When our minds and senses are baffled, faith can seem justified, but faith is not knowledge. In Ultimate Questions, acclaimed philosopher Bryan Magee provocatively argues that we have no way of fathoming our own natures or finding definitive answers to the big questions we all face. With eloquence and grace, Magee urges us to be the mapmakers of what is intelligible, and to identify the boundaries of meaningfulness. He traces this tradition of thought to his chief philosophical mentors, Locke, Hume, Kant, and Schopenhauer and shows why this approach to the enigma of existence can enrich our lives and transform our understanding of the human predicament. As Magee puts it, There is a world of difference between being lost in the daylight and being lost in the dark. The crowning achievement to a distinguished philosophical career, this is a deeply personal meditation on the meaning of life and the ways we should live and face death

The secrecy that must shroud the homosexual's life, the fragile nature of the great majority of homosexual relationships, the loneliness (particualrly among lesbians), the sense of irresponsibility in many males - all these factors are given due weight.

Wagner and philosophy by Bryan Magee( Book )

33 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book follows Wagner's enthusiastic youthful socialism to the near-Buddhistic resignation of his final years - and always in terms first and foremost of the effect of the ideas on his operas. It explores the relationship between words and music, between the conscious and the unconscious mind, between art and philosophy. It tackles soberly and judiciously the Wagner whose paranoia, egocentricity and anti-semitism are repugnant, as well as the Wagner of artistic genius. It deals also with his long and intimate friendship with the much younger Nietzsche." "Wagner has long been the most controversial of the great composers. There may be others who arouse as much fervour, but none arouses more antagonism. This has increased since the Second World War because of the association in people's minds of Wagner with Hitler, whose favourite composer he was and who put on special performances of his works. One of the arguments of Wagner and Philosophy is that such continuing associations are misleading. But the book confronts Wagner's anti-semitism head-on, and also the hotly debated question of whether or not this, too, gets into his operas."--Jacket
