Philosophy for Beginners,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Examined Life [DVD] (DVD)
This dvd is a video version of those illustrated paperbacks ' xxxxx for Beginners' series. As a previous reviewer observed 80 minutes is not going to deliver anything particularly earth shattering.
I have to admit that the documentary did cause me to consider 'philosophy' and I conclude that on balance it is a discipline which attracts non-combatants i.e. a lot of deep and meaningful, sometimes doomsday observations but with no answers to the issues addressed.
Is it worth a watch? Yes, but do go on to read a range of philosophical texts starting with Greek and Chinese writings in order to get a feel for how the discipline has or has not developed!
