Jumps about a bit too much between young girl and mother-of-three for my liking, can be slightly difficult to figure out who's perspective we are reading from.
However, in my view, these minor issues do nothing to dilute what is, in effect, a set of excellent essays that challenge the comfortable, consensual and politically-correct moral relativism of Britain today, and the resultant intellectual and spiritual vacuity.
You don't have to agree with O'Hear, but his criticisms are sufficiently rational and pointed that they give pause for consideration and reflection, if only to think through one's grounds for contending his viewpoint.
Perhaps one of the principle accomplishments of any worthwhile philosophical work is to place the reader at sufficient distance from the "zeitgeist" of his time that he can actually perceive it, i.e. "allowing the goldfish to see the water in which they swim". On this basis, "Plato's Children" qualifies as a worthwhile and, dare I say it, very accessible philosophical work.
I would recommend this book to anyone who finds life in 20th Century Britain vapid, but cannot grasp why. O'Hear points the way.
A damn good book
