The Little Book of Philosophy

Author(s): Andre Comte-Sponville

NZ non-fiction

In twelve brilliant, concise essays, Andre Comte-Sponville introduces twelve central philosophical concepts in the terms that we all use the words, and in which philosophers from Plato and Aristotle onwards have explored them: Morality, Politics, Love, Death, Knowledge, Liberty, God, Atheism, Art, Time, Man and Wisdom. The Little Book of Philosophy is as sparklingly written and as thought-provoking and brilliant as the same author's international bestseller, A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues.
