Overview

The book that answers the question: Why ask why? For the first time ever, a work that unravels the most difficult concepts of thought and logic for the layperson, from the Socratic method to Descartes I think, therefore I am to Kierkegaard s existentialism to Freud s id. This unique book also addresses contemporary topics, such as pop philosophy, the validity of ancient philosophies today, how an individual can mold his or her own philosophy and how to use philosophical principles in everyday life. Jay Stevenson, Ph.D., teaches writing, cultural history, and theory at Rutgers University. He is coauthor of The Concise Guide to Grammar and The Concise Guide to Legal Terms, a contributor to both the North American Biography and International Biography series for Grolier, and has written extensively on philosophy, cultural history, technology, and literature.

All my life I had wondered about TRUTH and then one day I decided to take the time and study Philosophy - which is the subject of truth. This book was the perfect introduction to the subject and was easy to understand. And now I'm very interested in taking Philosophy in college and perhaps majoring in it.
