Philosophy means "love of wisdom" in Greek. Unfortunately, as much as we all love wisdom, we donít all have the time to spend acquiring it! This fabulous little book provides the perfect antidote. Split into 60 one-minute chapters, Andrew Pessin offers you a snippet of philosophical wisdom everyday, giving you something to think about on your coffee break.
Guaranteed to sharpen your mental faculties, as well as entertaining you with its witty humour, The Sixty-Second Philosopher will delight aspiring thinkers everywhere!
"How many of the classic problems of philosophy can you solve on the commuting train? More than you might think, if Andrew Pessin's neat and provocative new book is anything to go by. The perfect start to thinking more deeply about life, the universe, and everything."
(Timothy Chappell, Professor of Philosophy, The Open University)
"A pot pourri of philosophical ideas! Written with a deft hand and a light touch."
(Martin Cohen, author of 101 Philosophy Problems)
