Written by Edward Craig, Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction offers an overview into the various dimensions of philosophy. This book is inclusive of concepts such as ethics and knowledge about self. The perspectives of famous philosophers such as Plato, Hume, Hegel and others are delved into as well. The different angles of philosophy are coherently connected by building a thread between diverse areas of study.
The book is useful for casual readers as well as for those who have a basic idea of how philosophy applies to everything around. Human beings form different types of opinion about the creation of earth and questions such as whether the human race is mortal or immortal never get answered clearly. These topics are widely reviewed and this book presents these questions along with rich discussions on various other philosophically-significant subjects in an illustrative manner.
The goals and purpose of individual life are intelligently elaborated in this book. Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction was published by Oxford University Press in 2002 and is available as a paperback.
