4.0 out of 5 stars All sophestry and lies throw to the flames., 6 Jun. 2005
Sophestry, Sophestry condemn it to the flames. This book is like a spot the mistakes book of philosophy. From the Cartesian Circle to the Intentional fallacy to the blatent disreguard of predicates this book is seriously flawed. Making the reader use pons asinorum from previous meditations to attempt to prove the most propostrous assertions from the existence of god to the idea that dualism has to occur.
Saying that i like this book. It was certainly needed to get philosophy moving and is very readable. Beware of taking it at face value this book has to be read very carefully to be understood deeply. There are about 5 levels of people who read this book. On first reading you will probably become lost through the forth meditation onwards but this is where the sophestry becomes the most intense.
Don't throw it to the flames becuase it is enjoyable to destroy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wierd weird book, 2 Sept. 2004
This book is very weird. It is a totally serious book about doing dancing moves with your cat!!!! I personally find it quite amusing, some of the pictures are pretty impressive, but really this book has to be taken with a pinch of salt. I really cannot see my cat leaping around the room in perfect harmony with me. These cats must either be bred for the job and trained from birth or the pictures must be a little edited. And even if it could then I see little advarntage to either me or my cat. All i would say is love your cat all you like but this book is just about turning them into a circus animal. Buy this book if you like but dont expect to be dancing with your cat anytime soon.
