Is there life after death?
Are euthanasia, suicide, or stem-cell research ethical acts?
Does the use of performance enhancers in sports constitute cheating?

In a lively, easy-to-follow approach, The Everything Guide to Understanding Philosophy introduces you to the major thinkers and the problems they've pondered during the past 2,600 years.

  • Russell and Sartre
If you're ready to broaden your outlook on life, this is the book for you. Endlessly fascinating-and always clear and concise-it's the perfect introduction for budding philosophers
