You think, therefore you are. Get a straightforward rundown on philosophy from the ancient world to todayIf you' ve ever pondered your existence over your morning coffee or considered the nature of crime and punishment, you' re an amateur philosopher. From everyday questions about happiness and responsibility to deep, spiritual examinations about God and the cosmos, philosophy pervades every part of our lives. And even though it might seem complex at first glance, these questions that affect everyone on the planet can be understood and talked about by anyone! In Philosophy For Dummies, Dr. Tom Morris delivers a refreshing and engaging exploration of the fundamentals of philosophy and shows you that philosophy can be fascinating and fun at the same time. You' ll be introduced to topics like the meaning of life, religious belief, and ways to live in the most satisfying ways. You' ll also learn about the insights of some of history' s greatest philosophers. This book is full of the questions-and proposed solutions-to the questions that keep philosophers up at night, like: When should we doubt our beliefs and knowledge? Is there a God? What is His/Her/Their nature? Do we have free will or are we simply acting out physical imperatives? Whether you' re interested in the nature of the mind/soul versus the body, or you want to learn more about morals and ethics, Philosophy For Dummies will be your personal guide to some of life' s most enduring problems and questions.
