No one is a born philosopher or everyone is born as a philosopher. We can look at it either way. Most of us use the philosophy or the so called reasoning mind for finding happiness of the self and come out with a selfishness philosophy to boost the ego and its gimmicks. For them, I guess the philosophy would be to liberate themselves from the pain and suffering, as they seek ways and means of happiness for the self.
However, there are many who would think altruistically for the happiness of themselves as well as of other human beings. This book, discusses a few eastern and western existential and pragmatic philosophers whose philosophies have influenced me in my life and gave meaning and depth to my life and triggered the interest to undertake this philosophical study on CSR and its impact on the society.
