Why was Sartre afraid of lobsters? What makes art great? Are the jokes in Kant’s Critique of Judgment funny? Does philosophy actually make philosophers wiser? As this book richly and entertainingly demonstrates, philosophy is as much the search for the right questions as it is a search for the right answers. Robert M. Martin introduces the reader to profound philosophical puzzles and paradoxes, and brings in surprising anecdotes from the history of philosophy, in this irreverent and seriously funny book.
