"Philosophy lends itself to thinking. Certainly, thought should pop into the philosopher's mind frequently and precipitate a mystical investigation of possibilities, stimulating the imagination and provoking the cognitive machinery. Not only are there thoughts in this book, but they are somewhat scattered among several subjects (a tendency of philosophers)."
With these words, Samuel Thorpe challenges every reader and prospective scholar to exercise the mind and wonder about reality, knowledge, and values. Learn from the masters and engage their ideas with fresh creative arguments. Readers will be pleasantly surprised how quickly they will be addicted to the study of wisdom.
This book is ideal for students of all ages and people who wish to engage their thinking in new ways. Each selection will hopefully provoke readers to consider some other ways to contemplate timeless issues of life that will be conducive to discussion and further reading of classical pieces of philosophy.
