Philosophy is a popular and difficult subject. Students taking philosophy courses in university are often at a loss for how to appreciate the strange problems they are taught. They either do not see there is a problem or feel that the problem is utterly trivial. The laymen are also captivated by the title "philosophy", but once philosophical problems are systematically presented to them, they find the technicalities involved obscure, pretentious and unnecessary. Twenty Problems in Philosophy is written to introduce reasonably motivated laymen and university students taking philosophy courses to the core problems of philosophy. These problems are presented in the way they are taught in a university, and yet the materials are packaged in a concise and accessible style. The coverage of this book is so broad that ten sub-disciplines of the philosophy curriculum are broached. This book is thus a complete mini-guide to contemporary western philosophy that is taught in a tertiary institution.
