Product Description

From the Back Cover

'Can machines think?' 'What is the meaning of life?' 'Is death to be feared?' 'Why be good?' 'What am I?' and 'WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW?' These are some of the most fundamental and frequently asked questions in philosophy. In What Do We Really Know? acclaimed author Simon Blackburn draws on his own distinguished work, as well as that of history's great thinkers, to provide a thought-provoking and accessible introduction to this eternally fascinating subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rather convoluted arguments made and very difficult to follow the logic. Fellow readers in my philosophy group found it less incomprehensible than me.....what does that say?

All of Blackburn's books should be on the shelves of all schools. His work is an excellent basis for proceeding with philosophy and is good for both the ac academic and general reader.
