5.0 out of 5 stars Philosophy for fun - love it! 13 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not only is this an excellent introduction to philosophy, it is also a good read. The tallented Stephen Law has made me realise that philosophy is an every day necessity, we do it all the time. As a life-long reader of SF and fantasy, I have been wrestling with philosophical questions all my life: what is it to be human, what is God, how do we know right from wrong?
There may be more complete or in depth books on the subject (lots of them) but I feel more prepared to tackle them thanks to Mr Laws and his illustrator Daniel Postgate whose cartoons illustrate the text perfectly. I think I am now able to read Sophie's World with confidence!
To whom would I recommend this book? Anyone who lives in a world with other people! It is aimed at teenagers, I guess, but would form a good springboard for discussion with younger children too. Teachers will love it, parents need it and the rest of us can just enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars should have adults only certificate! 22 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If I were a teenager I would absolutely hate this book. As a grannie I appreciate the examples and easy introduction to reasoning, which grannies everywhere can use to boost their own sagacity ratings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 27 Dec 2013

This is a great book and fun to read. Whilst it is really easy to read and has good examples it does still make you think. A good introduction to philosophy and reasoning.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first Philosophy book now both in one book 14 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I havent read this eBook yet but I have read the 2 volume of the Philosophy Files from my local Library years ago. (The Philosophy Files and the Other Philosophy Files) It was my first Philosophy books I have Read and My fav philosophy books. It aimed at teenagers, dont let that get in the way of your reading. It good read for all who wants to know about philosophy but have not read much on the subject. It a fun read for all to see. It not a dumb down version of Philosophy but a intalligent read and makes you think. Cant wait for the Xmass Philosophy file to come out. Also his Bulls*** book is a good read too. A Must buy for all. Thank you Amazon for making Stephen Law early work avalible for all on Kindle.
