    This lively and engaging book 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.

    Would you try another book from Edward Craig and/or Maurice West?

    Yes, this is a good listen and it makes a difficult subject clear to the layman.


    Would you recommend Philosophy to your friends? Why or why not?

    I do not know anyone else who is interested in philosophy, but if I did I would recommend this as a primer.


    What three words best describe Maurice West’s performance?

    Clear, understandable, nicely paced.


    Could you see Philosophy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Audible has an entire series on the key philosophers, which i recommend, but listen to this book first. I also bought a text book on the discussion of the great philosophers. People do not want to understand the development of philosophical thought, but these people develop for the rest of us how we think about the world around us.
