Philosophy (The Big Questions Series) by Simon Blackburn is the most practically interesting and helpful book I have read on philosophy. As compared to most philosophy books, the presentation and explication are lively, down-to-earth and useful in changing thinking. I loved the price and the format: all books should have the plastic covers like this one instead of paperback or hardback; and there is a built in elastic page keeper. My one quibble with Blackburn's philosophy is that his atheism shows strongly; most issues he shows the merit of both sides and not on the BIG issue of God. For example, he accepts the ridiculous (to me) multi-verse theories for the strong anthropomorphic principle, that there is 10120th probability that the free parameters of the universe at the time of the big bang came together "just so" the universe could come into existence, instead of letting Occam's Razor tell him it is God.Was this review helpful?
