This title is exactly as described. It offers simple, concise explanations of concepts in the field.
Following an introduction, this book is broken down into sections including Thinking About the World, Being and Language, Mind and Matter and, Right and Wrong. Each of these divisions has many subsections; to name just a few: An Unknowable Origin, Hume’s Fork, Taking Language Apart, The Helpless Mind, Human Understanding, The Virtuous Life and Moral Choice.
Each entry is illustrated and short. It is the kind of book that will answer questions for many and will encourage others to dig deeper.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
By the way, if you would like to learn more about philosophy through novel, I highly recommend Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder.
