Publisher Description

This lively and engaging audiobook is the ideal introduction for anyone who has ever been puzzled by what philosophy is or what it is for. Edward Craig argues that philosophy is not an activity born from another planet; learning about it is just a matter of broadening and deepening what most of us do already. He shows that philosophy is no mere intellectual pastime: Thinkers such as Plato, Buddhist writers, Descartes, Hobbes, Hume, Hegel, Mill, and de Beauvoir were responding to real needs and events, much of their work shapes our lives today and many of their concerns are still ours.

Lively and Engaging?????? I think not

The narration put me to sleep 3 nights running. I gave up after that. The subject matter chosen is hardly the most thrilling of introductions to this massive and enthralling topic. Avoid!

Also, is it me or does the audio quality on some of these audio books leave a lot to be desired? Its hardly CD quality. More like Medium Wave radio. Come on ITunes. Buck your ideas up!

Strength and Honour ,

Loved it!!

Easy to listen to and to understand. Don't listen to when tired-Philosophy requires attantion and concentration.
