'Are all moral claims synthetic? Or analytic? Or a priori? Or a posteriori? Or both? Or neither? What about tables? Can you see one? Ask yourself: does it exist? Too easy? Go out of the room and ask yourself again. The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Obey the brain warning at the beginning and don't read all 101 problems at once. On free will: You don't always act yourself if you're suffering from a paranoid personality disorder.' - The Guardian
This book is a fresh and original introduction to philosophy. Intended for those with little or no prior knowledge of philosophy, such as A-level students or readers in Further Education courses, the first part of the book presents philosophical problems as thought experiments which stimulate and promote thought and debate. The second part contains solutions and further discussions, complete with a glossary of unfamiliar terms. The problems offer the reader a thorough grounding in the history of philosophical ideas and are discussed in a clear, consise and often humorous manner.
