1.0 out of 5 stars Dire, 17 April 2014
I give this book 1 star because it is a propaganda manual more than a product of reasoned or enlightened personages.
It is intellectually bankrupt. Peter Boghossian is a so-called philosopher, but goes about rooting the foundation of his entire book on a straw-man concept of faith.

His idea of faith is believing in something which there is no evidence for, and his argument is that faith is not a good or reliable source of knowledge, it has no epistemological value.

Even if the game is "Good", when you buy a burger you expect to be able to eat it in good time. Not wait for 3 days for it to be cooked. Even if the burger is really good when it comes, a 1 star rating is still legitimate because of the lack of service.

You have chosen EA over you customers Amazon, and it won't be forgotten.

How many man hours did you rubbish, when you deleted those 2000+ reviews??

That is a crime against your… Read more
