Overview

Plunge straight in and try out philosophy for real in just ten minutes a day. This book may not turn you into a great philosopher in thirty days, but it will show you how to begin to think philosophically and prove that philosophy doesn't have to be intimidating. It can even be fun. Dominique Janicaud invites the reader to consider some of the big questions of philosophy and develop the critical, inquiring attitude which characterizes good philosophy. With a chapter a day, this is philosophy at its most accessible. Each short chapter tackles a single question such as: What is a human being? What does freewill mean? Is philosophy simply a matter of reading the famous works of the past? Do we need religion? What are good and evil? Along the way, we are introduced to some of the greatest thinkers of the past, from Plato to Nietzsche.
