Introducing Philosophy for Everyday Life: A Practical Guide by Trevor CurnowAre you interested in philosophy?
Do you want to know the basic ideas behind Philosophy?
If yes, then this book is for you.
The book, just like the title suggests gives a nice introduction to philosophy. Discusses some basic philosophical questions with the reader.
At the start, the author explains the way this book is meant to be read, please follow it! One thing I liked about the book is that it not only gives credit to Philosopher for the idea but also briefly talks about their life.
Remember, this book isn’t meant to be read in a sitting! You are supposed to think while reading, read less think more
Everyday Examples : An Introduction to Philosophy by David Cunning (2015, Hardcover)
Everyday Examples explores historical philosophy and the contemporary theory scene and includes ideas from both the analytic and continental traditions. This broad sweep of topics provides a synoptic overview of philosophy as a discipline and philosophizing as an activity. With examples drawn from everything from The Matrix and Sesame Street to sleepwalking, driving, dancing, playing a sport and observing animals, students are pointed to ways in which they can be a philosopher outside the classroom in the everyday world. As well as providing entertaining and relatable examples from everyday life, this book will be especially useful in the classroom, it is accessible and discussion-oriented, so that students can get first-hand practice at actually 'doing' philosophy. This accessibility does not come at the expense of rigour but, rather, provides a 'way in' to thinking about the major issues, figures and moments in the history of philosophy. The chapters are divided into brief sustainable nuggets so that students can get a definite handle on each issue and also be the expert for the day on a given section.
