Publication Date: 15 August 2014
15-Minute Philosopher introduces the reader to the main ideas of philosophy, showing how the subject has a clear practical purpose vital to our day-to-day lives and thinking. The subjects discussed here have been chosen to show that philosophy is by no means arid and academic but rather that it's useful, fun and necessary in getting to grips with the issues thrown up by daily life. In Q&A format, this book explains the philosophical arguments around such questions as Should I eat meat?; Does God exist?; Is capital punishment wrong; If a distant tree falls over in a forest, does it make a noise?; Does a dog have a soul?; Do humans have freewill and many more.
