Cogito, ergo sum,
This review is from: Philosophy For Dummies (UK Edition) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed Philosophy for Dummies - it covers a complex subject in an informative yet still light and humorous way, as is the "Dummies" style. You will know a lot of the names of the thinkers referenced in the text - but you may not know exactly what they actually thought! Martin Cohen helps to explain some difficult concepts in an accessible and understandable way.
If, like me, you studied with Bruce at the Philosophy Department of the University of Woolloomooloo you may only know of the drinking prowess of some of the more famous thinkers featured here - this book will expand your understanding! Cogito, ergo sum: I drink therefore I am, as the famous philosopher E. Idle once said! Understand that and you'll like this book.
