Editorial Reviews

Review

"Delightfully witty! Spanning the gamut of philosophical topics, this book serves as brilliant introduction to philosophy." --William Irwin, King's College, Pennsylvania, and Editor of The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series

"Fun, incisive, and a sheer pleasure to read this is amazingly rare for a book on philosophy! The whole book has the 'touch of the master' about it." -- Imre Leader, University of Cambridge, UK

"If llamas can fall in love with philosophy, this witty, clear, entertaining and learned little book is the just the thing to make them." -- Timothy Chappell, The Open University, UK

About the Author

Peter Cave is a lecturer in philosophy at The Open University and City University, London, UK. He frequently contributes to philosophy magazines and journals, from the serious to the fun, lectures around the world, and has scripted and presented philosophy programmes for the BBC. With sales of over 50,000 books, he is one of the leading philosophers in the UK.

More About the Author

Peter Cave lectures for The Open University, UK. He studied philosophy at University College London and King's College Cambridge - and has held lecturing posts - and given guest lectures - abroad and in the UK.

Peter is chair of the British Humanist Association's Humanist Philosophers' Group and is often involved in public debates on philosophical, religious and political matters - including those of general public concern and everyday life.

Curiously for a philosopher, he is also a Chartered Financial Planner and is involved in setting financial examinations for the Chartered Insurance Institute.

Peter has scripted and presented humorous philosophy programmes for BBC Radio4 - and has written many light philosophy articles for a range of popular philosophy magazines. His academic interests focus on paradoxes, with papers appearing in academic philosophy journals, American Philosophical Quarterly, The Monist, Analysis etc.

Peter's recent books are the best-selling (in the UK) 2007 philosophy book, Can a Robot be Human: 33 Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (2007), and (2008) What's Wrong with Eating People? 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (both published in Oxford by Oneworld).

A more serious work is Humanism (Oxford: Oneworld, 2009) which, as well as challenging religious belief, looks at humanist stances on ethics and politics and the meaning of life, taking us from matters of abortion and euthanasia to life's absurdities. His latest book, with a slightly more academic tone, is This Sentence Is False: An Introduction to Philosophical Paradoxes (London: Continuum 2009).

Peter lives in Soho, in central London, is developing an interest in opera and, although an atheist, he enjoys religious choral music - and is often to be found with a glass of wine in his hand, red or white, at The French.
