informative, witty and intelligent,
This review is from: Zeno and the Tortoise: How to Think Like a Philosopher (Paperback)
For anyone with absolute minimal understanding and knowlege of philosophy, then this book is perfect. Rather than becoming a history book though, it instead serves as a self-educational tool which the reader can use to learn how the greatest philosophers through the ages thought and analysed every subject they deemed worthy. But the main idea behind the book is not so you can sit and ponder the meaning of life (although this is certainly one thing you can do) but rather how you can use philosophy to examine your own life.
a thoroughly enjoyable read that may reveal certain things about yourself
