An accessible and humorous introduction to philosophy.
on 16 February 2011
'Philosophy for Dummies' is an accessible and often humorous introduction to what can be a difficult and intimidating subject. The 21 chapters are divided into six parts: 'What is Philosophy?', 'The History of Philosophy', 'The Nuts and Bolts of Philosophy', 'Exploring the Mind, Consciousness and Morality', 'Philosophy and Science' & 'The Part of Tens'. The latter gives brief guides to ten famous philosophical books and ten philosophical puzzles.
Despite the poor proofreading, anyone wishing to get some idea of what philosophy is all about could do no better than acquire a copy of this enlightening and entertaining book.
