    For more than two millennia, philosophers have grappled with life's most profound and "eternal" questions. It is easy to forget, however, that these questions about fundamental issues like justice, injustice, virtue, vice, or happiness were not always eternal. They once had to be asked for the first time. This was a step that could place the inquirer beyond the boundaries of the law. And the Athenian citizen and philosopher who took that courageous step in the 5th century B.C. was Socrates.

These 24 remarkable lectures suggest otherwise-that emotions have intelligence and provide personal strategies that are vitally important to our everyday lives of perceiving, evaluating, appraising, understanding, and acting in the world.

    Author C. C. Roberts uses logic to take on the philosophy questions related to the Good Lawyer Bad Lawyer Paradox and Other Paradoxes of Bureaucratic Bloat. In most cases, the reason you need a lawyer is to defend yourself against other lawyers, either because of direct affronts on their part or, more likely, because of gratuitous laws put in place by lawyers, along with a general air of litigiousness for which they are responsible.

    In a small town in the Florida panhandle, a 25-year-old cold-case murder is reopened. A new, female police officer visits an old folks' home and finds that the prime witness in the case, Jacob Jeebs, was officially diagnosed with Alzheimer's last year and is still in the early stages. This new information might lead to a conviction of the main suspect from 25 years ago. But what would the legal ramifications be? An Alzheimer's patient has never testified at a trial of any kind before. How can you put him on the witness stand? How can you not? He is the only one who knows the truth.

Logic and philosophy lovers find the solutions to the most baffling new and old paradoxes.

    People often ask me, "How did Mrs. Duchesney become a famous Paris detective?" I tell them it should have been easy to predict that Francine Robinsworth Duchesney would find success doing something unexpected of a young woman from a small town in the American Midwest. For you see, she had never been what others in that part of the world might call "normal." When I came to Paris in search of Mrs. Duchesney, a person described to me as the legendary Paris Sleuth Extraordinaire, I did not imagine her to be the unassuming little woman seated alone on a bench in Parc Montsouris.

Roberts writes how an ass that has to choose between food and water and is exactly as hungry as it is thirsty cannot make a choice and will therefore be paralyzed by indecision. But such an ass would in fact be able to make a decision.
