Who exactly is the intended audience for this stuff?,
This review is from: The Form of Things: Essays on Life, Ideas and Liberty (Paperback)
Grayling writes smugly, from what he clearly imagines to be a great height, downwards in the direction of what he equally clearly sees as his lowly and benighted readers. I spent an hour leafing through this yesterday and took away little more than a vague and amused impression that he was trying to patronise me. The fact that I agree with him about most things only made it worse: with friends like this, suddenly my enemies look a lot more dangerous.

I suspect, Sean, you are trying to tell us that you already know all of this and that you have gone beyond the need for popularised philosophy. Your comment tells us much more about yourself than the book.
