Recommended: Justice for Hedgehogs

“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.” This aphorism—these days egregiously co-opted by self-help books and motivational business seminars the world over—has been attributed to the Greek Lyric poet Archilochus, and provides the title for philosopher Ronald Dworkin’s new book, Justice for Hedgehogs, in which he attempts to merge “morality” and “ethics” to discover that “one big thing”: the value of life. Dworkin also wrote a wonderful essay adapted from his new book for The New York Review of Books, which I highly recommend checking out.
