pulsing, pacey philisophy!,
This review is from: Philosophy Bites (Hardcover)This is a brilliant documented composition of 25 philosophers on 25 incredibly diverse topics from ethics to metaphysics to aesthetics. This is lively, engaging and a dash-highbrow! The whole gamut of life ranging from infinity, evil, friendship, animals, tragedy and wine is covered here... from their brilliant podcasts and all their illuminating conversations are recorded in print for the first time...... This is the fruit of three years labours, where David Edmonds and Nigel Warburton have challenged some of the world's leading philosophers in over a hundred conversations and their accompanying success of seven-million downloads!
These bite-sized interviews reveal, often the most brilliant philosophers are eager and able to convey their thoughts, simply and clearly, on the great ideas of philosophy. Engaging, personal, and illuminating material! Uniquely brilliant!

You haven't given it 5 stars..yet give nothing but praise..
What would it have to be for it to have a 5 star review?

Hi there William
Fair question indeed...... For me, a 5-star review is simple: it's the rare kind of book that I would buy, keep and have on my shelves because it would have been read two or more times in full.... So the high and true compliment is that it is a 4-star book of excellent qualities!
Best wishes, Johnny

Thank you for a helpful review. I did ask others on a particular forum whether these books are the actual transcripts of the Philosophy Bites podcasts which I do listen to but received no response . However, you answered my question and I will buy a couple of these books in the not too distant future.
