Pressestimmen 'Blackburn has produced the one book every smart person should read to understand and even enjoy the key questions of philosophy ranging from those about free will and morality to what we can really know about the world around us.'--Walter Isaacson Time Magazine'Simon Blackburn's lucidly elegant essay is a guide to the most central concerns of philosophy... A beautifully clear account of the chief arguments in each debate. Blackburn is an accomplished philosopher which makes this a valuable little book.'--Sunday Times'This is a wonderfully stimulating incisive and -- the word is not too strong -- thrilling introduction to the pleasures and problems of philosophy.'--John Banville The Irish Times'Blackburn does a fine job of rendering the big thinkers and their thoughts accessible while picking his way through Western philosophy's murky territory. His writing is simple and clear and the liberal use of example and analogy makes Think a most readable work.'--Allison McCulloch Denver Post'Think is by far the best introduction to philosophy that I know. Compact but hugely readable this delightful book would be an excellent basis for an introductory course as a text or as preliminary reading. You could also give it to family and friends and all those annoying people who ask you what philosophers do. If Think doesn't explain it to them nothing will!'--Huw Price author of Time's Arrow and Archimedes Point'Written with exemplary concision and with conviction that philosophy needn't be an ethereal subject alienated from practical concerns.'--Booklist'Elegant...beautifully clear.... A valuable little book.'--Descartes's Demon'To read the book is to sit down with an engaging highly learned conversationalist; readers new to the subject could very well be captivated. Highly recommended for academic and public library collections.'--Library Journal Synopsis This is a book about the big questions in life: knowledge consciousness fate God truth goodness justice. It is for anyone who believes there are big questions out there but does not know how to approach them. Think sets out to explain what they are and why they are important. Simon Blackburn begins by putting forward a convincing case for the study of philosophy and goes on to give the reader a sense of how the great historical figures such as Descartes Hume Kant and Wittgenstein have approached its central themes. Each chapter explains a major issue and gives the reader a self-contained guide through the problems that philosophers have studied. The large scope of topics covered range from scepticism the self mind and body and freedom to ethics and the arguments surrounding the existence of God. Lively and approachable this book is ideal for all those who want to learn how the basic techniques of thinking shape our existence. Alle Produktbeschreibungen
