A.C. Grayling

A.C. (Anthony) Grayling is the founder (and current director) of the New College of the Humanities in London, which offers its students a classical and excellent humanist education. Previously, he was Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College. Grayling is considered one of Great Britain’s, but also the world’s, most influential philosophers of our time, in part due to his regular TV appearances. His works frequently deal with topical social issues, ethics and the question how we should live, as is illustrated by The Good Book. A Secular Bible (2011), The God Argument. The Case Against Religion and for Humanism (2013) and Friendship (2013).

Friendship is discussed in detail in Nexus Review.
