Do You Think What You Think You Think?: The Ultimate Philosophical Handbook
Explore the gray areas in your gray matter with philosophical brainteasers from the bestselling author of The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten
Is your brain ready for a thorough philosophical health check?
The author of the international bestseller The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten and his fellow founding editor of The Philosopher's Magazine have some thought-provoking questions about your thinking: Is what you believe coherent and consistent, or a jumble of contradictions? If you could design a God, what would He, She, or It be like? And how will you fare on the tricky terrain of ethics when your taboos are under the spotlight?
Here are a dozen philosophical quizzes guaranteed to make armchair philosophers uncomfortably shift in their seats. The answers will reveal what you really think, and it may not be what you thought. Fun, challenging, and surprising, this book will enable you to discover the you you never knew you were.
