Everything we do - from waking up, to negotiating, to enforcing ethics - is philosophical. We cannot choose to avoid philosophy, we can only choose whether we understand it or not. Stefan Molyneux, host of Freedomain Radio – the largest and most popular philosophy show in the world, with over 600 million views and downloads – takes you on a spectacular journey through the most foundational philosophical questions of the ages, clearing up and clarifying the most thorny problems posed by philosophers throughout history:
How do we know what is real?
How do we know what is true?
How do we know what is right?
How do we know what is good?
How do we know we even have a choice?
How do we convince others?
These are all questions that we – as individuals and societies – wrestle with every day. These questions have challenged, motivated and plagued mankind for thousands of years. “Essential Philosophy” answers these questions with rigourous, illuminating and entertaining logic, reasoning from deep first principles to spectacular final conclusions.
There is no need for confusion, there is no need for despair, there is no need for fear – pick up this book now, absorb the true power of philosophy, and live a rational moral life to the fullest.
And then, give “Essential Philosophy” to others, so that the world may one day live in reason and peace.
