Philosophy: What It Is and Why We Need It
by

Publisher: Smashwords
ISBN/ASIN: B007Y7SEWS
Number of pages: 203

Description:
What is the point of studying philosophy? And what is philosophy, anyway? Isn't it just a bunch of crazy people who think that reality doesn't exist and we can't know for sure whether we are conscious? Moreover, since there are many competing philosophies out there, is there some way to actually determine the truth, or does one's life philosophy always end up being just a matter of opinion? In this engaging, informative, and often lively book, Tom Blackstone seeks to answer these as well as many more important philosophical questions.
