    DescriptionIn this book of puzzles and paradoxes, Peter Cave introduces some of life's most important questions with tales and tall stories, reasons and arguments, common sense and bizarre conclusions.

Illustrated with quirky cartoons throughout, "Can a Robot be human" takes the reader on a taster tour of the most interesting and delightful parts of philosophy. This title is for everyone who puzzles about the world.

    Review quote
    Timothy Chappell - Professor of Philosophy, The Open University"Peter Cave's lively new book is full of arresting ideas, brow-creasing conundrums, persistent puzzles, and pleasing paradoxes. It is ideal reading for open and inquiring minds from 12 to 112-- in fact for everybody who is just dipping a toe into philosophy for the first time."Lawrence Goldstein - Professor of Philosophy, University of Kent"With skill and good humour, Peter Cave guides the reader through a maze of intriguing philosophical puzzles."
