For Raymond Geuss, philosophers' attempts to bypass normal ways of thinking-to point out that the question being asked is itself misguided-represents philosophy at its best. By provoking people to think differently, philosophers make clear that we are not fated to live within the stifling systems of thought we inherit. We can change the subject.

Reviews

Because this book is the fruit of a long lifetime mastering the subject, its structure, style, and often trenchant critical evaluations give expression to a genuinely distinguished and distinctive view of the world. It is a rather unconventional introduction to its field; but that very unconventionality makes it a far more valuable guide to what philosophy really demands and offers than many of its more pedestrian competitors.--Stephen Mulhall, University of Oxford Geuss is an astute reader and conveys with remarkable clarity, elegance, and wit some of the essential ideas of the authors whose work he is discussing. His thinking is always fresh and provocative, and arises out of a deep engagement with these philosophers.--Richard Kraut, Northwestern University Changing the Subject is the fruit of a long lifetime mastering the subject, and so demonstrates much more than an impressive breadth of scholarship: the work's structure, style, and often trenchant critical evaluations give expression to a genuinely distinctive and distinguished view of the world.--Stephen Mulhall, University of Oxford
