Description

Philosophy for Beginners is a terrifically readable introduction to a broad understanding of philosophy. Ostensibly written to introduce secondary students to philosophical theory, it is in fact an engaging read for anyone who wants to know more about this sometimes intimidating subject. At all times, it is entertaining, inspiring and provoking.The work encourages discussions on fundamental questions of humanity with a clarity of thought and with a degree of open-mindedness allied with a desire to think for oneself. By introducing the ideas of various philosophers throughout history the author demonstrates the living nature of philosophy and how it is central to much of the larger 'thought' behind the evolution of western civilisation.Best of all is the author's repeated assertion that all ideas are open to be discussed, disagreed with and even completely refuted. It is a liberating stance that will appeal to many readers.show more
