Description:

1st Printing. 176 pages. Published in 2012. Book-length account on subject. One of the best books on philosophy written in and for our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Michael Picard's "Philosophy: Adventures In Thought And Reasoning". Refreshingly accessible account on his often intimidating subject. "Will expand your mind, put your neurons through their paces, and question the foundation of your opinions and knowledge itself. You'll discover that you can't even trust your own senses even though they are all that you have. Filled with philosophical puzzles that have intrigued the greatest minds, quizzes that reveal the inconsistency of our ideas, insoluble logical paradoxes, and moral dilemmas that force us to confront our beliefs. Will give your intellect a workout that you will thoroughly enjoy" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for philosophy book collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the most illuminating accounts on philosophy. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO NAOMI ZACK'S "THE BIG BOOK OF PHILOSOPHY" TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1435140966. Bookseller Inventory # 17831
