The Uses of Pessimism
The Uses of Pessimism
Price: 3.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Pessimism- the optimist's best hope., 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A most useful corrective to much modern sloppy thinking and policy making. Whether you agree with all his views or not, Scruton is always interesting and challenging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philosophy need not be dull and difficult, 22 Mar 2014

very readable; gives interesting background to each philosopher; links philosophy to the problems of everyday life. Choice of philosophers may seem idiosyncratic, but there are clear links made between those chosen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychiatry on the couch, 6 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
an excellent challenge from within of the problems of the psychiatric profession. Readable and entertaining but fair. A good challenge to unjustified orthodoxies.

2.0 out of 5 stars When Kindle backfires, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For once, I was disappointed in a Kindle version of a book. The book requires you to read diagrams to get the most out of it, but the diagrams are so small that this is impossible. The facility which increases the size of the typeface does not alter the size of the diagrams. The text of the book is helpful but I wish I had bought the "real" book. It is also much more difficult to navigate around the Kindle version of this book than around a physical book.
