Description
Drawing on the writings of the great philosophers, journalist and popular philosopher Gary Hayden sends the reader on a rollercoaster tour of their most outrageous and counterintuitive conclusions. Augustine said that babies deserve to go to hell; George Berkeley asserted that matter doesn't exist; Jeremy Bentham would have argued that Dan Brown is better than Shakespeare. All these statements stem from philosophy's greatest mindsóbut what were they thinking? Spanning ethics, logic, politics, sex, and religion, Hayden shows that just because something is odd, doesn't mean that someone hasn't argued for it.

"A delightful read, fun and informative. Truth is stranger than fiction, and philosophical truth is the strangest of all."óWilliam Irwin
