Rezensionen

'Kingwell's diverse essays together constitute a convincing case that "critical immersion in the world" has the potential to improve the quality of the practical judgments we are called upon to make daily. The possibility of improving the quality of such judgments in turn sustains cautious hope for a gradual improvement of the workaday world we share ? The arguments are sound and innovative and engaging.'
