I began this book on a few occasions, but abandoned it due to other pressing reading. I’m glad I came back to it and read it in its entirety.
If you want to get a fresh (and ancient!) take on addiction, philosopher Kent Dunnington has produced the right book. Using folks like Aristotle and Aquinas the author charts a fresh way to understand addictions. He points to the ancient idea of habits as a way “beyond” models that hold to either disease or choice as the culprits.
There is much food for thought in this taut and well-reasoned book.
