Publisher's Description

Philosophy at its best is an activity more than a body ofknowledge. In an ancient sense, done right, it is a healing art.It’s intellectual self-defense. It’s a form of therapy.But it’s also much more. Philosophy is map-making for thesoul, cartography for the human journey. It’s an importantnavigational tool for life that too many modern people try to dowithout.

Philosophy For Dummies is for anyone who has everentertained a question about life and this world. In aconversational tone, the book's author – amodern-day scholar and lecturer – brings thegreatest wisdom of the past into the challenges that we face now.This refreshingly different guide explains philosophicalfundamentals and explores some of the strangest and deepestquestions ever posed to human beings, such as

  • How do we know anything?
  • What does the word good mean?
  • Are we ever really free?
  • Do human beings have souls?
  • Is there life after death?
  • Is there a God?
  • Is happiness really possible in our world?
