Pretentiously written, without any in depth analysis.
on 14 August 2016
A fair attempt at an introduction to philosophy but really lacks any depth or insight into any of the topics covered. A lot of generalisations made through the most pretentious writing style imaginable. Really quite annoying to read, and makes the book inaccessible to those who would want an introduction this basic. I'd recommend Jonathan Glover's 'Humanity a moral history of the 21st century'. Similar style, in a series of essays, but far more depth and analysis applied to events everyone is aware of.
Not impressed with Grayling at all.
