9780099450184: The Little Book Of Philosophy

In this remarkable little book, Andre Comte-Sponville introduces the reader to the western philosophical tradition in a series of sparkling chapters on the 'big questions'. In doing so he reveals the essential bones of philosophical thought and shows why philosophy is relevant in our day-to-day lives.

In his brilliant and concise writing on morality, politics, love, death, knowledge, freedom, God, atheism, art, time, Man, and wisdom, he inspires the central question of philosophy - how should we live? - and provides the reader with signposts towards a happier, wiser life.

Review:

"He is so good at the timely application of those questions that make philosophy interesting... Here at last is someone who can lay these matters out both intelligently and straightforwardly" ( Guardian)

"Any interested reader will be able to accompany him in his philosophical explorations without losing any of their richness and insight" (A. C. Grayling Financial Times)

From the Publisher:

Andre Comte-Sponville's brilliant and thought-provoking follow-up to A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues is even shorter and if anything even more ambitious; an introduction to the central concepts of philosophy, from morality to death, from liberty to wisdom.
