Description

Where did the universe come from? Is time travel possible? Is it morally acceptable to design babies genetically? If you have ever asked yourself such questions, then you have already begun to think philosophically. This book is for those who want to take the next step. Stephen Law poses some of the most important philosophical questions of today - and of yesterday. Light-hearted questions about whether a pickled sheep is really art rub shoulders with more profound and time-honoured fears about whether God exists. He illustrates the problem with a story then lets both sides of the argument battle it out in clear, easily digestible and intelligent prose. And by separating each issue into a distinct section, it is possible to dip in and out in any order and at any time you like.show more
