Overview

Your life through the lens of the world's greatest thinkers!

Do you ever wonder how important money really is in life or what you need to do to achieve happiness? With The Philosopher's Book of Questions and Answers, you will be one step closer to solving these uncertainties. Inside, you'll find the basics of philosophy, written in plain English, and thoughts for applying these important theories to your own life. You'll also be encouraged to dig deep into the philosophical reasoning behind your everyday actions with a series of fascinating prompts, such as:

  • If you had ten times your wealth and ten times your income, what would you do then that you can't do now?
  • What's a version of that activity that you could do right now?
  • Is it ten times less meaningful, important, or enjoyable than the activity you would do with more money?

From Socrates and Epicurean to Kierkegaard and Nietzsche, The Philosopher's Book of Questions and Answers will not only help you grasp history's greatest thoughts, but will also unveil the world in a whole new light.
