Publisher Description

The perfect introduction to the central ideas of philosophy now available in audio format.

Have you ever lain awake at night fretting over how we can be sure of the reality of the external world? Perhaps we are in fact disembodied brains, floating in vats at the whim of some deranged puppet-master?

If so, you are not alone - and what's more, you are in exalted company. For this question and other ones like it have been the stuff of philosophical rumination from Plato to Popper.

In a series of accessible and engaging short lectures delivered in the deep chocolate tones of reader Laurence Kennedy, 50 Philosophy Ideas You Really Need to Know introduces and explains the problems of knowledge, consciousness, identity, ethics, belief, justice, and aesthetics that have engaged the attention of thinkers from the era of the ancient Greeks to the present day.

50 Philosophy Ideas that you can't really get a grip on...

Sadly, whilst the information is good and the reading is nice - there is no way to be able to move from one chapter to another to listen to a particular thing. If one had the book, you could read the chapter headings and go straight to the one you want. I think there should be a written list of the chapters with the time code so that one can go to points in the recording. Please give us a way of navigating this information - we don't all necessarily want to listen to it over and over again from beginning to end.

worthy if interested

first half is quite good, i recommend it, but then after about 25-30 it slowed down till an almost halt.
