From Barnes & Noble
Because many of its most famous practitioners are long dead, many of us regard philosophy as an activity far removed from our ordinary daily lives. Robert Rowland Smith, however, knows better. He argues that even though Socrates wore a toga, he would make a great breakfast buddy. In fact, he contends that philosophers make great meal companions; imagining, for example, bagels with Hegel and eggs with Bacon. (Francis, that is.) Breakfast with Socrates guides curious readers through an entire day (getting up; going to work; shopping; watching TV; having sex) with a philosopher by your side. Your escorts will include such luminaries as Aristotle, Walter Benjamin, Thomas Hobbes, Woody Allen, and Jim Carrey. An illuminating diversion; now in paperback and NOOKbook.
