Synopsis

Philosophy by Nicholas Fearn

The work of the great philosophers of the past is well known. From Aristotle and Plato to Kant and Wittgenstein, the answers to life's biggest questions have been discussed and debated endlessly. But, as philosophy itself teaches, there is never a final solution to a philosophical problem. In the search for higher meaning, Nicholas Fearn has travelled the globe to interview the world's most distinguished thinkers, from Derek Parfit, David Wiggins and Bernard Williams, to Donald Davidson, Richard Rorty and Bernard-Henri Levi. Philosophy is a brilliant and compelling guide to the latest answers to the oldest questions, bringing to light what today's philosophers think about what it is to be human.

Reviews
