This review is from: The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten: And Ninety Nine Other Thought Experiments (Hardcover)
The experiment in the title of this book is taken from 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where it is done in a light and amusing way, but still makes a philosophical point. Some of the other experiments are obviously rewritten from Martin Cohen's earlier classic book of 101 thought experiments, others are old 'evergreens', but this Bagini book is a useful rewrite of the present range of philosophical stories.
