4.0 out of 5 stars One of an interesting series of books, 27 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Philosophy: All That Matters (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like the "All That Matters" series of books and this one on Philosophy is up to standard. The subjects covered by the range will give you an idea of where they are coming from: Muhammad, Water, Political Philosophy, Sustainability, God, Intelligence, Love, Russian Revolution, War, and Creativity, are also available in this format.

Although the books are really just a taster for the subject covered rather than literally all that matters, they still offer a good overview and introduction to the subject. Julian Baggini is well known in his field and contributes to a number of magazines, newspapers and the BBC and has written quite a few other works on this subject. Amazon has provided one of its useful "Look Inside" features for this edition so you can get a feel for what is covered.

This is an inexpensive introduction to a fascinating subject which can help you to understand the subtleties of Monty Python! All together "...... John Stuart Mill, of his own free will, on half a pint of shandy was particularly ill. Plato, they say, could stick it away; half a crate of whiskey every day......"
