Summary/Abstract: When Obrad Savić approached me about translating some of my writings, I suggested that he select those articles and chapters from my books which he thought would be most thought provoking. He not only organized the material, but also gave the title to the collection. When I received his proposed table of contents, I was delighted that he organized the writings around the theme of responsibility – a theme that has always been central to my philosophic thinking... Philosophy should have a close connection with the rest of human culture. It is the primary responsibility of the philosopher to provide a necessary critical perspective, and to help guide human action... I believe that there is something important to be learned from all of these thinkers – even though they sharply disagree with each other. (Richard J. Bernstein, Introduction)
