    Did I deny that it's an influential work? Of course it is. It's just unfortunate, because it's so bad.

    Legal philosophy is no doubt influenced by political philosophy, but you have to realize that "legal philosophy" is nonetheless a distinct category. It's specifically concerned with the nature and validity of legal systems. Political philosophy is much, much broader than that and does not often provide much guidance to legal scholars working on legal issues. In studying both philosophy and law, I've never heard anyone refer to A Theory of Justice as legal philosophy.

    Anyway, if you can't argue for which influential philosophical works are good or bad, you really don't know much about philosophy, do you? I never claimed I was any good at philosophical history.

    Ours had "Dartmouth" green shag in the sun room covering the original 1920's wooden floors.

    Okay, let's try this. Suggestions for sub-$3,000 white, rectangular coffee tables. Greater than four feet in length and at least two feet in width. No higher than fifteen inches.

    Go.

    Cappellini used to make a series called the low table that came in every color of gloss and matte lacquer, but I see they no longer do. They were awesome.

    Why not go down to the marble yard and have them make you a carrera marble thing to sit on the floor?

    A lot lighter than a kitchen island...

    Or get a nice section of tree and split it lengthwise.

    That's a heavy kitchen island! But it's also spread out over maybe 30 square feet, and the table over only 8 square feet. I'd be concerned about the floor's ability to hold that up.
