In this lucid and accessible book, Thomas Nagel explores the central questions of philosophy thoughtfully, clearly, and with humour. He demonstrates that philosophy is an indispensable key to understanding our lives, and far from being an arcane academic discipline, can be enjoyed by all.


'His style is deceptively simple, concealing the profundity of the thought, and is luminously clear. His chatty, easy way of writing goes with a rigorous logic of argument ... Nagel has given us an admirable challenge to what the Greeks called 'the unexamined life'.' Cogito 'I don't know how many will find their way into philosophy via Nagel's Very Short Introduction, but it will be enough fully to justify the efforts of everyone involved.' Times Literary Supplement 'The author is blessed with an ability rare in his discipline to combine rigour with good humour, and variety of approach with simplicity of expression. The most welcome thing about the book is that it presents the core questions of philosophy to the beginner without the deterrent baggage of names and -isms.' Anne McElvoy, The Times 'Mr Nagel is well known among academic philosophers for bringng the clarity and rigor of analytic philosophy to such large philosophical questions.' Roger Kimball, 'His style is clear and free of technical terms, and the book should appeal to those who know little or nothing of the discipline.' Library Journal 'If someone confronts you with the problem Get me an introduction to philosophy and I have only one evening free to read it , I can recommend Thomas Nagel's introduction. If for the umpteemth time you are asked What is philosophy all about , tell him or her to read this book... how would you go about explaining the complex relation between a determinisic world-view and the free will problem? Thomas Nagel shows how it can be done and quite impressively so.'Philosophica
