Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate -- that's my philosophy." Fortunately, most of us ignore the advice enunciated in Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth. In fact, many people believe that philosophizing is not only less fattening but more enjoyable than ice cream but that it is the attribute that makes us most human. Barbara Ann Kipfer's advances that argument by submitting more than 1,000 thought-provoking questions. For these brainteasers, there are no correct answers: "What makes something beautiful?" "Does everything in life have a purpose?" "Is it possible to think about nothing?" Cogent cogitating.
