The Adventure of Reflection
(La aventura de pensar)
Commercial Non-Fiction / Divulgation
There is nothing more comfortable for us —nor more dangerous— than certainties. Our best defense against certainty is philosophy; which forces us to question, dares us to think and examine established truths to see what they hide. In this stroll through the history of philosophy, Savater introduces us to the big figures whose questions, and sometimes answers, have marked Western thought. Plato, Aristotle, Nietzsche, Marx, Ortega, Wittgenstein, among other philosophers. This book is an invitation to abandon clichés and share the wonderful adventure of reflection with the great philosophers.
