Summary This book canvases the thoughts and practices of Kenneth W. Thompson, who has contributed a 'public philosophy' of multidimensional and interdisciplinary ideas and practices. Drawing on interviews with Thompson and those surrounding him, this work is organized around the three dimensions of Thompson's public philosophy: theory, education, and politics. These three pillars show how Thompson's ideas establish a system of thought that not only helps in understanding the human condition during the Cold War but also enlightens humanity at large to navigate and make decisions in the public sphere. Most importantly, his theories help the world, in his own words, 'move civilization ahead.'
