by Anne Rooney
In this title’s introduction, Anne Rooney points out that philosophy is about the big questions in life. She notes that the kinds of issues that we grapple with today are, in many ways, the same as those that the ancient Greeks wrestled with. Over the centuries, beginning with the Greeks, philosophers have engaged with concepts related to being, justice, beauty, ethics, politics and more.
If you are a person who thinks about life’s deepest issues this book will be sure to engage you. The author’s style is readable and the topics that she covers are broad and interesting. Read with her as you think about whether there is a god, how should we live, what makes a good society and more.
I recommend reading this book slowly so that there is time to engage with the concepts and issues raised. It will be time well spent.
