Product description


‘Daniel Klein’s relaxed and humorous style is deceptive. You will enjoy his wit and then realise that you have been treated to his wisdom. It is a superb introduction to philosophy, showing how its problems are not only intriguing and challenging but also of the utmost relevance to our lives.

(Raymond Tallis, author of The Kingdom of Infinite Space)

From the Back Cover

A philosophical trip through life filled with warmth, humour and wise words – and including a new postscript written exclusively for this edition

What is the art of living well? Do you ever feel like Reinhold Niebuhr when he wrote the words “Every time I find the meaning of life, they change it”? Well you’ve come to the right place, because Daniel Klein once did too.

Fifty years ago, Klein began filling a notebook with short quotations from the world’s greatest thinkers – from Epicurus and Emerson to Camus and Beckett. Now he revisits the wisdom he so relished in his youth, bringing with him the wealth of rich experiences that eight decades of life have bestowed upon him. With his inimitable charm and insight, Klein gives us a delightful meditation on existence and all its possible meanings, making philosophy resonate with our everyday lives as only he can.
