Philosophy for Life

Full Product Description

"Philosophy for Life" is a bold call for the practice of philosophy in our everyday lives. Philosopher and writer Rupert Read explores a series of important and often provocative contemporary political and cultural issues from a philosophical perspective, arguing that philosophy is not a body of doctrine, but a practice, a vantage point from which life should be analysed and, more importantly, acted upon. "Philosophy for Life" is a personal journey that explores four key areas of society today: Politics, Religion, Art, and the Environment. Taking tangible examples from modern politics, from climate change to the war on terror, and culture, from Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" film trilogy to the poetry of TS Eliot, Read shows that philosophy is already an active part of today's world. This captivating and timely book offers a philosophical response to some of the key questions facing today's society and encourages us to use philosophy as a kind of therapy. "Philosophy for Life" shows that we can improve our perspective on the world and our place in it by doing philosophy everyday.

Philosophy for Life by Rupert Read was published by Continuum in July 2007. The ISBN for Philosophy for Life is 9780826495600.
