Description
HereÆs a lively, hilarious, not-so-reverent crash course through the great philosophical traditions, schools, concepts, and thinkers. ItÆs Philosophy 101 for everyone who knows not to take all this heavy stuff too seriously. Some of the Big Ideas are Existentialism (what do Hegel and Bette Midler have in common?), Philosophy of Language (how to express what itÆs like being stranded on a desert island with Halle Berry), Feminist Philosophy (why, in the end, a man is always a man), and much more. Finallyùit all makes sense!
