Read in January, 2012 — I own a copy

Excellent book that remains relevant long after it was written. The first half which is the essay from which the book gets its title is excellent and the more engaging of the two essays. The second half of the book entitled "The Philosophical Act" is a bit more heady, and still full of good insight but not as easy to read or follow.
