What are our memories and feelings? What are ideas? What is the nature of time? How do our thoughts connect with the world at large? Is freedom of thought an illusion, or a possibility worth striving for? Basing his discussion on everyday examples, Richard Bunzl addresses some of the oldest and most fundamental philosophical questions. Using language that is simultaneously vivid, down-to-earth and poetic, he presents thought-provoking, bite-sized chapters, each ending in helpful summaries. This is a highly readable and practical philosophy of life that conjures up and illumines universal human experiences.
