He can make the most difficult issues seem simple and straightforward, sprinkling his commentary with examples that are as timely as they are germane."--Edward L. Schoen, Western Kentucky University


"Students will be 'hooked' on the style, which is direct and readable."--Blanche L. Premo-Hopkins, University of South Carolina Aiken


"In simple and straightforward language, The Little Philosophy Book lays out all of the central philosophical issues one is likely to discuss in introductory courses."--Joseph A. Buijs, St. Joseph's College, The University of Alberta

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Richard Levi on December 3, 2007
Format: Paperback
Solomon is an ideal guide into this subject. He is analytic enough to avoid postmodern verbiage, and existentialistic enough to care about the human condition, our place in the world, and our efforts in trying to make sense of it all. For a philosophical amateur like myself, most of my time immersed in the everyday chores of trying to keep people alive and well, Robert C Solomon is just the right type of guy to hang around with over a beer, reflecting on the use of it all. A little pearl of a book.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Stefan Woehrer on February 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
This little book is a very smooth and valuable introduction to philosophy. Solomon addresses the big questions directly and without any unnecessary sophistication but with genuine interest. He gives the views of some of the finest minds the world has ever seen on those questions in plain but elegant English and gives philosophy novices the chance to appreciate those ideas. However, don't expect clear answers to those questions or practical guidelines for living a happy life. In the end, it's still an introduction, although a very good one...
