"Dr. Speidell is a creative teacher who has written an imaginative book for teaching philosophy. In a contemporary idiom, the book raises classic and foundational questions: What do we really know? How do we find truth? Are values and knowledge simply relative to our culture and experience? The book's dialogic format, which considers these questions from the perspective of a new college student listening to professors in debate, is sure to engage students. The author's plea for listening as the path to learning is much needed these days."
