hard to find a belt where the waist belt section is neoprone too - and doesn't rub: this fits the bill and is really comfy - but the zip is prone to sticking: I've had two of these - both excellent. but with slightly sticking zips..

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough here to challenge..., 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Philosopher's Beach Book is and isn't what I expected. This seems in line with many philosophy books, and turns out not to be a problem at all..

At first I expected a cheery, pick-me-up / put-me-down, non-threatening tone which was friendly to both experienced and inexperienced alike. In this I was correct. The tone is consistent, upbeat and each section is short enough to read with a single cocktail.

My second anticipation was less positive - and was thankfully disappointed. I had feared that the content would also be light, leaving the philosophical holiday-maker untested. It soon becomes clear that this is not the case. While I like most section 35, on death ('Who Were You?'), there are serious challenges throughout this book. Questions of meaning, consciousness and fairness all crop up, and do a good job of giving the reader plenty to think about. And that is where the joy of this resides. You only need a few pages, before you'll want to sip a drink, cast your eye over your chosen holiday destination - and think over what Thompson has had to say..


The God of Philosophy: An Introduction to Philosophy of Religion
The God of Philosophy: An Introduction to Philosophy of Religion
by Roy Jackson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The basics - and much more..., 17 May 2012
Dr Jackson's book is a clear, well-laid out introduction to the philosophy of religion. But it is also more than that. Yes, the book covers all the key areas you'd expect, and makes sure to cover all those topics that students are likely to need to know about, but it also goes beyond most other books that claim to do this. The second edition has a new chapter on atheism, and brings the book up-to-date on related debates - but it also has a strong evaluative thread running through it. The author has no ideological axe to grind, but does draw out problems where he sees them and this is a book that not only will familiarise its readers with key topics - it will lead them into working out where they themselves stand on some thorny and perennial problems in the discipline.

2.0 out of 5 stars what the ?, 27 Jun. 2008
Some really interesting ideas - drenched in the most thick, treacle-like over-written prose...
A shame - as there is something rather intriguing to the work - but felt like it was hidden on purpose...

5.0 out of 5 stars sparky, as ever, 12 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Violence (Big Ideas) (Paperback)
Yes, it is flawed; yes, it is full of arguments that he has used at length elsewhere - but few can write prose that is as stimulating to read. Agree or not, Zizek has something to say - and you'll be glad you read it...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor - detail instead of argument, 29 Dec. 2004
This is a conservative book which argues for religion. It suggests that atheism has had its time. What the author does is to concentrate on an analysis of the consequences of theism and atheism - not the issue of God's existence. The book does cover a lots of ground, but the detail is often a mask for the lack of argument. Given the author's reputation and profile, this is a weak book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book in need of proofreading, 29 Dec. 2004
A very interesting book. Obvioulsy the result of serious research on serious issues. BUT the editing / proof-reading lets it down badly. There are so many errors in the text that at times I had to put it down in frustration. I would say - go ahead and order it - but be prepared to be patient while reading...
