In The Little Philosophy Book, acclaimed author Robert C. Solomon provides a brief, lively, and engaging introduction to deep and perennial philosophical questions. He leads readers through an exploration of the self, the universe, and the nature of truth and morality, posing such questions as "Who are we, really?" and "How should we live?" Solomon begins with a quick tour of ancient philosophy that ranges from Socrates' Greece, to Vedic India, to Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist China, and to the Middle East. He goes on to examine consciousness; God, nature, and spirituality; freedom and responsibility; and ethics and the good life, ending with an examination of happiness and the meaning of life. An ideal introduction for novices, The Little Philosophy Book does not provide any definitive answers to major questions, but instead encourages readers to think for themselves and to integrate philosophy into their own lives.
