Review: The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten: 100 Experiments for the Armchair Philosopher

User Review  - Philip Stirups - Goodreads

Julian Baggini's book is interesting enough with some discussion into philosophical debates/ideas. However the brevity of each article is also its downfall. In lots of places the discussions are superficial and end rather abruptly. Would not recommend. Read full review
