Description

The Little Philosophy Book is a short exploration of major philosophical questions. Robert C. Solomon engages students in an exploration of the self, the universe, and the nature of truth and morality, addressing deep and perennial questions. In a lively and accessible style, with attention to history and other cultures, he poses such questions as 'Who are you, really?' and 'How should we live?' Because no definitive answers are provided, the book encourages students to integrate philosophy into their own lives. It is an ideal primer for any introduction to philosophy course.show more

Review quote

"Robert Solomon regularly gets directly to the heart of the matter, providing clear, unpretentious expositions and thoughtful, relevant critiques. He can make the most difficult issues seem simple and straightforward, sprinkling his commentary with examples that are as timely as they are germane."--Edward L. Schoen, Western Kentucky University"Students will be 'hooked' on the style, which is direct and readable."--Blanche L. Premo-Hopkins, University of South Carolina Aiken"In simple and straightforward language, The Little Philosophy Book lays out all of the central philosophical issues one is likely to discuss in introductory courses."--Joseph A. Buijs, St. Joseph's College, The University of Albertashow more
