This chapter talks about how the author had come to study philosophy, his impressions on the philosophers he'd encountered in his studies, and other anecdotes from his academic career. It covers Cohen's childhood in the 1940s up until his academic career, which was still progressing by the 1960s—the point at which this chapter concludes. Along the way the chapter shares some reflections on how “So many of the things that we do and that matter so much to us we do both for good and for bad reasons.” Excluded here is the story of his encounter with Isaiah Berlin, as it has already been detailed in chapter 1.
