From the Publisher"A bold, lucid and convincing introduction to the practice of philosophy. Without relying on unnecessary jargon and technicalities, Trigg guides readers into central, profound areas of philosophical concern. Philosophy, for Trigg, is not some idle, merely academic undertaking; philosophy matters when we try to think seriously about values, our place in the cosmos and the power and limits of science. This is a superb volume."
Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf College
Roger Trigg, in Philosophy Matters (2002), confronts and elucidates the vital philosophical issues that shape our lives today. Common sense, he argues, depends on the philosophy of previous generations. Trigg illustrates how philosophy is a practical tool for understanding science, reason, the laws of nature, relativism, Darwinism, the human brain and mind. Trigg is a professor of philosophy at the University of Warwick." Science and Theology News, June 2004
"The book's apparent simplicity easily belies its sophistication. Trigg's opening chapter cleverly sets the scenefor what follows as well as providing useful background on the emergence of Western philosophy.This is an excellent book." Science and Christian Belief
