Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the most controversial philosophers and social theorists of our time. He opposes liberalism and postmodernism with the teleological arguments of an updated Thomistic Aristotelianism. It is this tradition, he claims, which presents the best theory so far about the nature of rationality, morality, and politics. This is the first reader of MacIntyre's groundbreaking work. It includes extracts from and his own synopses of two famous books from the 1980s, After Virtue and Whose Justice? Which Rationality? as well as the whole of several shorter works and two interviews. Together, these pieces constitute not only a representative collection of his work but also the most powerful and accessible presentation of his arguments yet available. The MacIntyre Reader concludes with Kelvin Knight's clear and insightful overview of MacIntyre's central ideas and their development in his writings. Students will find this book an excellent introduction to one of the great thinkers of our time.

Excellent book and a great seller.

Here presented is the best short introduction to the thought of Alasdair MacIntyre I know. Especially enjoyed the sampling of his political thought.
Waiso
This is a reader, but it is---I am grateful--- not characterized by abridgments, brief summaries, or short excerpts. It is a great point of entry to A. MacIntyre and is intended more to present MacIntyre's mature thought than it is to trace his changes in perspective over time. Knight has also written for this volume a very good intro to MacIntyre that is well worth reading.
Dishadel
This is a reader for those who need to become familiar with MacIntyre and do not have the time to dedicate to actually reading his complete works. This is *not* a reader for those who want to really know MacIntyre's thought. Not only do you miss out on recent MacIntyre since this was this published before Dependent Rational Animals: Why Human Beings Need the Virtues (The Paul Carus Lectures) etc. it has all of the typical shortcomings of a reader. Ultimately you're making the choice to save time by accepting the editor's version of what is important.

Buy this if you need basic MacIntyre fast. Skip this if it is going to infuriate you to only know half the story.

The articles collected, especially "The Claims of 'After Virtue'", contain a counterpoint to much of Strauss and Mansfield's work. This is very valuable considering the proliferation of the historian and his prodigy's opinions on the topic.
