Intelligent Person's Guide to Philosophyby Roger Scruton
"Remarkable" said The Wall Street Journal about Roger Scruton's Modern Philosophy. "It will be enjoyed by academic specialists and armchair philosophers alike." Now this emminent philosopher takes the discipline beyond theory and "intellectualism," presenting it in an empirical, accessible, and practical light. The result is a useful guide to "doing" raher than "studying" philosophy. Scruton looks at philosophy through a prism rather than as an "ism," and through that prism the reader gains a working knowledge of philosophy - and of reality. An Intelligent Person's Guide to Philosophy is a refreshing antidote to late-twentieth-century fuzziness.
