Review:

Philosophy: Questions for Consideration and Discussion

  • If you wanted to avoid philosophy completely, what would you have to do?
  • Do you really have a right to your own opinion? Always, or only sometimes?
  • Are there limits to what the State can properly demand of its citizens?
  • Some people believe in miracles. Why?
  • What would happen if you decided not to believe anything without having a good reason for it?
  • About the Author:
