5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to Humanism, 16 Jun. 2009
Peter Cave has written another excellent book. He explores the theme of humanism sensitively, pointing out common misconceptions about humanism that often lead to ill founded criticisms, while at the same time answering the more genuine concerns people have about the subject, and explaining the difficulties humanists have concerning religion. In tackling topics, ranging from, religion, morality, politics, living and dying and the meaning of life, he argues we should take responsibility for our own actions and lives, and treat others as responsible agents based on our intuitive understanding of humanity and its values, rather than defer to religion. Further to do so is not necessarily selfish, neither will it lead to chaos and hedonism, but rather a celebration of best qualities of a very unique species.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Tought Provoking, 6 Dec. 2008
Peter Cave has written another entertaining and thought provoking book. His exploration of a variety of paradoxes and puzzles challenges our intuitions, revealing the more complex implications of seemingly straight forward situations. Written in a stimulating and amusing style, the book is very 'dipable into', with each puzzle being a self-contained chapter. However, you will still be thinking about the conundrums he raises long after you've put the book down.
