Baggini, Julian

Date finished: 2012-06-04

An entertaining basic discussion of philosophical issues and their relevance to once-current news stories, though the selection of news stories now seems dated. Baggini discusses the morality of war, the distinction between private and public ethics, how (and whether) to maintain political principles, the use of scientific evidence, and the difference between a cult and a religion. A closing chapter discusses the philosophical mindset and developing a meaning for your life, and an afterword suggests titles for further reading.
