Overview

Will Durant once lamented that, "philosophy is no longer loved today because she has lost the spirit of adventure." "Adventures in Philosophy" is Durant's attempt to recapture that spirit. In actual debates, symposiums, and personal discussions, topics such as the meaning of life, politics, religion, history, and the nature of humanity are all explored by Durant and some of the leading minds of the 20th century.

Also included are fictional dialogues, written by Durant, which bring together many of history's greatest minds in a discussion of philosophy's most challenging questions. In these symposiums, the scope and breadth of Durant's erudition is at once apparent, yet done so in wonderful, often epigrammatic, prose that (as Max Schuster once commented) "begs to read aloud."
