    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBThis book mostly consists of philosophers raising some interesting uestions and then failing miserably to answer them It really is a hodgepodge of concepts where they stick their feet into every interesting philosophical pond available but hardly spends the time reuired to really test the waters or to gauge the depths So while the book was not very valuable from the perspective of finding good answers it was still a good ex

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBThis book occupies an odd position for philosophy fans and those interested Its main and most arguable virtue is the exposure of the reader to many bite sized ideas on a variety of different subjects in philosophy by contemporary philosophers While in an Intro to Philosophy class one might spend uite a bit of time learning about Plato Hume and Kant one spends far less time learning about the contemporary philosophers who are applying ancient ideas to contemporary problems and creating new ideas all together However the book itself is a simply a series of transcripts of podcast interviews but each interview is uite good and very informative The book strikes a good balance between explaining some fundamental ideas of the study of philosophy without burdening people already familiar with those ideas with longwinded explanation but the ideal reader of this text is absolutely someone with a familiarity wi

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBmm a lot of people are hating on the inconclusive answers given by each philosopher which I think is a relatively fair comment to make but I don't think this detracts from the purpose or overall standard of the book There's still plenty of discussion to learn from and enjoy Unexpectedly this book is v readable and immersive I read it all in about 12 sittings which for me at least says a lot

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBI happened upon this book in the philosophy section at the local library Initially I was looking to read either Plato at the Googleplex or a book about the philosophy of the TV series Lost After reading the cover insert and the preface I couldn't resist this book Needless to say I was not disappointed This book a painstakingly written reconstruction of

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBI thought this book would be interesting since the cover said it was tidbits of the best of philosophy I've always thought philosophy and psychology to be interesting topics since it discusses how we think on a fundamental level Unfortunately this book was of a justification for abhorrent behaviors As a God fearing person I believe that there are universal truths that govern morality People may have different beliefs and even believe and worship different gods but at the core of whatever people believe is a code of moral behavior that teaches people to be kind to their neighbor and do good whenever we can Many of the chapters of this book challenged that

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBIn concept this is a success The philosopher’s eye takes orbit over issues of new world concern ascending beyond its geriatric cabalism and lightly asserting its relevance today If introductory and of popular thrust the broad sampling makes for a condensed lesson in case and there is enough inuisitional intrigue to carry the reader through a solid afternoon though I’d skip the section on Politics where too often fair weather morality ensconces dull reflectionThe horror film – why take pleasure in darkness Incest – why does it disgust Wine – what’s the fuss and why not orange j

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBThis book was BAD I stopped reading at page 142240Philosophy much like psychology is littered with wishy washy pseudo intellectual metaphysical bullshit but this book took it to a different levelInteresting uestions are posed by the interviewers but often than not the philosophers completely fail to answer them You'll encounter a lot of mindless rhetoric circular reasoning and just plain bad answers To make things worse only a few pages are spent answering each uestion so you definitely can't expect any depth from any of the answers either Don't waste your time with this garbage

    Hardcover ☆ Philosophy Bites Epub º philosophy download, bites pdf, Philosophy Bites ePUBTranscribed but touched up from the ten minute podcast interviews this book is awesome It starts with dozens of philosophers being asked What is philosophy and all their responses are printed before we even get to the interviews These are short and to the point covering a range of topics multiculturalism art infinity and much The focus is on practical application of philosophy in real life situations rather th
