The Good, The True And The Beautiful

Full Product Description

Why should we be good? How do we know what is true? What is it all about? The Good, the True and the Beautiful asks crucial questions about who we are and what makes life worthwhile. Michael Boylan offers an accessible and stimulating introduction to philosophy, exploring issues to do with ethics, knowledge and aesthetics and how they relate to our everyday lives. He proposes a highly original understanding of the good, the true and the beautiful that seeks to answer many of the questions that have traditionally occupied philosophers. Using thought experiments to engage the reader in ‘doing’ philosophy, Boylan explores what it means to be good, true and beautiful in today’s world. Get your ticket now for a fascinating journey of self-discovery.
