Philosophy is the quest for a life that is fully alive. Drawing on the insights of philosophers through the ages, The Way of Philosophy clarifies what it means to live life intensely. It exposes the shallowness of conventional wisdom by asking such questions as
–Can science know everything? –Should we do it if it feels good? –Is beauty in the eye of the beholder? –Is life about creating ourselves? –Is love supposed to be selfless? –Can we ignore death? –If God exists, why is he hiding?
Philosophers invite us to go down deep and live a life in light of truth, goodness, and beauty. If we tread this path, we can discover for ourselves the hidden source of the philosophical life in the unending wellspring of wonder.
