For Stanley Rosen, "philosophy must begin with a careful consideration of ordinary or everyday life as the context within which occur the dislocation and problems that demand extraordinary theoretical and analytical measures.

Rosen's first two books, a study of Plato's Symposium and Nihilism: A Philosophical Essay, represent his abiding concerns. On the one hand he continuously returned to the roots of the philosophical tradition, in particular to Plato, and, on the other, he thought through modern and postmodern philosophy by confronting their most powerful representatives.

In this book of carefully arranged occasional pieces, Rosen combats that assumption both explicitly and by demonstration. The first chapter, "Suspicion, Deception and Concealment," seeks to show that the experience philosophy must clarify is necessarily deceptive.

In this rich collection of philosophical writings, Stanley Rosen addresses a wide range of topics―from eros, poetry, and freedom to problems like negation and the epistemological status of sense perception. Though diverse in subject, Rosen’s essays share two unifying principles: there can be no legitimate separation of textual hermeneutics from philosophical analysis, and philosophical investigation must be oriented in terms of everyday language and experience, although it cannot simply remain within these confines. Ordinary experience provides a minimal criterion for the assessment of extraordinary discourses, Rosen argues, and without such a criterion we would have no basis for evaluating conflicting discourses: philosophy would give way to poetry.Philosophical problems are not so deeply embedded in a specific historical context that they cannot be restated in terms as valid for us today as they were for those who formulated them, the author maintains. Rosen shows that the history of philosophy―a story of conflicting interpretations of human life and the structure of intelligibility―is a story that comes to life only when it is rethought in terms of the philosophical problems of our own personal and historical situation.
