Philosophy grounds itself in factual "truth." By revising how we understand this, we make a change that has profound impact upon most world-wide systems for gaining knowledge.

This shift away from factual "truth" can only occur when we correctly understand it--and distinguish it from analytical and moral truth--because truth is entrenched deeply within our outlook.

Overview

Philosophy grounds itself in factual "truth." By revising how we understand this, we make a change that has profound impact upon most world-wide systems for gaining knowledge.

This shift away from factual "truth" can only occur when we correctly understand it--and distinguish it from analytical and moral truth--because truth is entrenched deeply within our outlook. With correct understanding, an emerging insight beyond old truth can transform the world and launch an authentic philosophic revolution.

PHILOSOPHY THAT WORKS, 200 pages, streamlines its philosophic arguments into lively reading.

Any book about how philosophy's changing, reworking itself into a useful discipline and available to more people, should be well-written. And this one is. More than that, it's full of original ideas about how the basic assumption common to all knowledge--truth--can betray those bent on getting new knowledge or understanding unless what truth is can be fully comprehended. Even the more demanding sections--and there are several--are a rare pleasure to read. Elegance in analysis is its own reward. I recommend Philosophy That Works to serious readers, tired of seeing the same old rehash of earlier insights. This is fresh. Maybe that's why they put tree blossoms on the cover.
