Legacy of Wisdom: Great Thinkers and Journalism introduces the reader to the ideas of great philosophers, writers, and intellectuals -- from Confucius and Plato, to Machiavelli and Kant, to Simone de Beauvoir and Sissela Bok -- and the ways their ethical systems apply to journalism and journalists today. Merrill's book explores the variety of ways that these philosophies of some of history's great thinkers enter such timeless issues as freedom of the press and responsibility; objectivity and truth; language style and propaganda; and mass media and modern society. This valuable and most readable book should stimulate lively discussion and further reading.
