Note From the book : "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. Value is one big thing. The truth about living well and being good and what is wonderful is not only coherent but mutually supporting : what we think about any one of these must stand up, eventually, to any argument we find compelling about the rest."--Book jacket
