Like so many other things in our digital age, philosophy has been declared dead or obsolete more than once. To refute these deniers, MacArthur fellow and award-winning author Rebecca Newberger Goldstein (The Mind/Body Problem; Disproving Spinoza) transports Plato to the modern age, dropping him into Google headquarters, the 92nd Street Y, a cable news interviewer's booth, an MRI laboratory and other venues to observe, learn, and debate relevant issues. Goldstein's imaginative approach reminds us that this adventurous discipline possesses relevance that extends long after Philosophy 101 final exam blue books have been passed in and graded. One reviewer hailed this book as "witty, inventive, genre-breaking."
