Almost fifty years beyond his death, the legacy of Robert Hartman
and his axiology is uncertain. In an age of rampant social media
and international policy being conducted by unreflective tweets, almost
any “philosopher” seems archaic. The excellent work of scholarship and
insight exhibited by Hartman’s lectures on axiology is vital. It allows an
important piece of Hartman’s work to find new light and—with any
good fortune—claim yet a further breath of sustainability and relevance.
