Reflections On How We Live

Annette C. Baier

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the concept of intellectual self-image through the narration of Annette C. Baier's life. The narration begins with Baier's childhood in New Zealand, where she grew up with her intelligent father, devoted mother, and three sisters. After completing her university studies in Otago University, Baier traveled by ship to Britain to study at Oxford. Baier finished her days in Oxford and devoted herself to teaching philosophy in several universities. The chapter concludes with Baier's words, implying that the short narration of her life is not for the sake of vanity but for the virtue of honesty.

Keywords:   intellectual self-image, Annette C. Baier, New Zealand, Otago University, Oxford, philosophy, honesty
