    Recently challenged by one of my former English/Literature teachers to use “20 awesome historical words we need to bring back” (link below if anyone is up for the challenge!) I thought it’d be fun to give it a go here😜:

    Though I may come off as a pretentious peg puff, I have nothing better to do than write an ultracrepidarian review in light of unceasing uhtcearing in bed as a result of my consumerist cacoethes which have once again resulted in an unshakeable shivviness.

    I cannot say that there is no twattling in this book, but perhaps that is what lends it an undeniably entertaining quality. The anecdotal and conversational style make it accessible to even beginning philosophers, as well as those philogrobilized or simply dysaniac slugabeds who enjoy grufeling in sub-standard weather conditions.

    A plethora of questions touching on love, death, justice, and everything in between are explored by real-life philosophers who are perhaps fudgeling ever so slightly, or perendinating the more academic work assigned to them. Though some questions seem to be posed by snollygosters and grumbletonians suspicious at the probable kakistocratic nature of authority, this doesn’t diminish the fact that the text is certainly a thought-provoker.

    Whilst occasionally frobly-mobly in the way formal philosophical concepts and theories are used, it’s a light read perfect for the abligurition-addicted lanspresado and groke, especially if they are fortunate enough to have a coach willing to temporarily donate their philosophy books to them.

    While novels are not commonly described as “callipygian”, as one philosopher, Paul Grice suggests, “what gives words meaning is that they become standardised as tools for getting certain messages across” - perhaps if enough people adopt this phrasing, it will become a common book descriptor...plus I can think of no other way to use all twenty words than to misappropriate this one.

    An amusing, informative, and stimulating read.

    I took a Sunday and read this book in one day. It was a nice experience, interesting, absorbing, with different philosophy experts weighing in on different topics.

    Reading this book was a game changing eye opener for me. I shifted my focus on everything thanks to this important work.

    I bought this book online, thinking it would be about what the title says 'What would Socrates say?'. The book summary on the back cover was misleading, to say the least.

    The book is written in a Q&A form, which is fine. What is not fine is that a. the book is not about what it says it is b. there is no direct reference to specific Schools of Philosophical thinking (or Socrates, for that matter), just random quotes here and there supposedly supporting vague arguments and weak examples. The questions are more thought-provoking than the actual answers.

    This book is neither for the 'advanced' philosophical reader nor the beginner. I feel like I was 'cheated' and life is too short to read books you don't enjoy even remotely.

    Had I browsed through the pages in the store (and not online) would not give this book a try.

    A good range of questions

    At first I thought I was a victim of bait and switch. This is not a book of contemporary questions answered by quotes from classical philosophers. And I would have quickly figured that out if I had taken even a minute or so to thumb through it. But it was cheap on a remainder table and it looked like fun,

    Socrates remains silent for the most part, although he and other big guns may be occasionally referenced by one of the twenty-two academics who answer reader inquiries on the website AskPhilosophers.org. They all teach at respected institutions, with Amherst College, home base of editor Alexander George, well represented. And this contemporary line up of philosophers probably have more to say and can speak more directly to the issues posed by the questioners than quotes pulled from The Critique of Pure Reason or The Nichomachean Ethics. For instance, I cannot image that Socrates would be very enlightening on the Santa Claus issue -- when to tell, how to break the news, and specifically is it morally wrong to let kids believe in St. Nick at all. On the other hand, Mark Crimmins, who teaches at Stanford, and Louise Antony from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, offer lively, contrasting views. I am curious to know how many parents will be convinced to follow Ms. Antony's tough love approach.

    The book is divided into chapters with titles like, "What Can I Know," "What is a Man," and, "What Ought I to Do." (On that last one, yes, you should probably visit your mother for Christmas even if you don't particularly want to.) The question of relativity comes up often, in the moral rather than the Einsteinan sense. If lions eat meat why shouldn't I? Why are moral codes opposed to evolutionary codes?

    In some cases the inquirer might get more than he or she bargained for, but the responders are not above telling the questioners not to quibble so on some issues. When asked why philosophers so seldom agree, Nicholas J. Smith of Lewis and Clark in Portland, Oregon, is very to the point, "It is our job to disagree."

    This makes for good breakfast reading. A question or two a day is about right.

    It's probably unfair to write reviews of books that I can't finish reading, but whatever... Found it on the shelves and it looked interesting. It's a compilation of Q&A from a philosophy website. Questions asked by ordinary people with answers that mostly just bored me to tears.

  8. says:

    There isn't really much to say. If you don't know the basics of Philosophy and the most common questions about it, then you should read this book. Otherwise, it's not really interesting. The philosophers weren't really insightful except on a few things.

  9. says:

    Thought provoking questions answered in the same fashion. Pretty deep stuff at times. Interesting enough to read over and over.
