Bales of Woe

Maybe when 'tis best not to reason - poor Ass...

Friday 9 October 2015

Do we make the stars in the sky? Whatever are these things called 'time', 'love' and 'the self'?

Engaging philosophical perplexities, from the serious to the whimsical, The Big Think Book also introduces tales, whereby we meet Frog and Scorpion, Humpty Dumpty and Ms Turkey, Ant and Grasshopper, Sloth and Flutterby... not to mention some thoughtless Barbarians. The Big Think Book takes readers from the wonderful to weird; from the funny to the provocative – and to very deep matters indeed.

With the aid of tall stories, jokes, fascinating insights and common sense, the book offers a comprehensive survey of all areas of philosophy, addressing the big questions in ethics and politics, aesthetics and logic, the emotions and religion, knowledge and metaphysics… of reality.

Replete with a smorgasbord of amusing and mind-boggling cases, this is perfect for delighting in life’s conundrums.
