What do contemporary philosophers think? Answering this question seems to be a peculiar and dramatic task. This happens for two reasons: the first one, because it is necessary to make a choice between the vast and brilliant minds of the contemporary philosophical scene; the second one, because it is interesting to know what these "contemporary philosophers" actually discuss in their theories and how they resonate in the non-philosophical world. The book presents the dialogue held over three years with Peter Singer, Daniel Dennett, John Searle, Hilary Putnam and Zygmunt Bauman. It’s goal, far from finding a guiding thread among the authors, is to pass through some of their main ideas that have increasingly aroused a significant debate at the frontiers between ethics, conscience, language, reality and society.
