Product Description

Philosophy is to question everything. More than a lifestyle, larger than any single idea, broader than a conviction, philosophy is the love of exploration, of knowledge, of uncertainty, and of that cornerstone of free thinking: doubt. Kevin Perry's "Philosophy" takes the reader on a grand tour of life's biggest questions, examining all that the world's greatest philosophers have said about life and death, love and loss, language, art and God, to name a few.

Philosophy is a great companion and a roadmap to navigate life's major milestones, including: How to make sense of death What loving someone or something means The effect of art on our lives What role language plays in understanding the world How do our ideas affect our actions

5Great resource for those starting out in Philosophy
By star7
I found this book particularly interesting and while reading it, I learned that the study of Philosophy definitely relates to me. It made me question and think in depth about almost everything, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The book also presented me with many new ideas and concepts to analyze. Overall, it has a decent layout, and is broken down into sections based on the philosopher’s main focus and general philosophy basis, but some areas do blend together. It also gives background on the philosophers themselves and describes their theories throughout history, referred to as the “then and now.” I thought a great bonus was how the book listed the key works of each philosopher at the end of their portion in each chapter—I plan on reading several of them. There is also an alphabetical listing of every philosopher mentioned, for later reference. Throughout the book, I did notice some minor spelling errors and also missing dates (saw no dates of living/death for 1 of the philosophers). I would like to see the definitions on the chapter pages for each main section in a larger font, and also the wording on the timelines. Please note: I received this product in exchange for my honest review.

4I found it to be a very easy read and even found it nice to read right ...
By Katie O.
I have always been slightly interested in Philosophy and this book will give you a brief description of the main philosophers and their thoughts. I found it to be a very easy read and even found it nice to read right before bed. I found myself having some weird dreams, but I stayed asleep. Not saying that's going to work for you, but I figured it was something worth nothing. At the beginning of each chapter there is a timeline for the philosophers discussed in that chapter. I like having that there because you know what you will be reading further about.

This book will cover: Various Famous Philosophers like Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, Friedrich Nietzche, and Hannah Arendt just to name a few.

Love, death, life in general.. is all defined by how each of us see it from our own eyes. I recommend this book to anyone interested in Philosophy looking for a new book to read.

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

5This is a great book for learning more about the ideas of philosophy
By Nicole M. Bouchey
This is a great book for learning more about the ideas of philosophy. It was a very entertaining if you really want to learn more about philosophy and every great philosopher in history. There are chapters on so many different subjects, including life, knowledge, art, love and death and much more. With so many different chapters and timelines, I had a hard time putting this book down, I just found it so interesting. My teenage daughter also loved this book, she thought it was a great way to learn more about the ideas she has learned about in school. I would recommend this book to anyone who is always looking to learn more about philosophy.
I received this book free for my honest review, all opinions are my own.
