When we have been battered by such nonsense as a U.S. President declaring things like it all depends on what the meaning of the word is is, and other forms of relativism running rampant in all walks of life, is it really any wonder why irrational, illegal and/or immoral behavior continues to increase in frequency and plague our world? But it doesn't have to be this way. One refreshing antidote to help change this course of relativism is provided by Mortimer Adler's Ten Philosophical Mistakes. Written for the person of common sense, Ten Philosophical Mistakes will help all those sincerely seeking the truth based upon the wise recognition that truth is real and not merely an illusion as some would-be intellectuals propose. Indeed, Adler ably defends common sense wisdom by setting forth and thoroughly refuting the biggest and most persistent errors about reality that come from influential philosophers of the 17th and subsequent centuries. Along the way, the reader enjoys a stimulating course in superior critical thinking that can serve to give greater meaning to a life of reason. Not a bad result, that.Was this review helpful?
