What appears to be, prima facie, a critique of his contemporary intellectual climate and educational failures is actually a treatise on the fundamental metaphysical substance of life and the foundational epistemic building block of knowledge. This book will be useful to people who are interested in a lucid description of the thoughts of Jeremy Bentham, John Stuart Mill, and Immanuel Kant. Tyra narrates how Bentham qualified his claim that ethics was a matter of maximizing pleasure and minimizing pain, and how religion fit into (and did not fit into) Kant’s views of : James Pate.
