Summary
This text argues that Western philosophy on the whole has overemphasized rational control and autonomy at the expense of the important countervailing value and virtue of receptivity. Recently the ideas of caring and empathy have received a great deal of philosophical and public attention, but both these notions rest on the deeper and broader value of receptivity, and in this book, Slote seeks to show that we need to focus more on receptivity if we are to attain a more balanced sense and understanding of what is important to us
