The 50 most thought-provoking philosophies, each explained in half a minute
I Think Therefore I Am, Existentialism, The Socratic Method and Deconstruction. Sure, you know what they all mean. That is, you've heard about them. But do you know enough about them to join a dinner party debate or dazzle your friends with your knowledge? 30-Second Philosophies takes a revolutionary approach to getting a grip on the 50 most important and significant schools of philosophy. This book explains the most significant theories of philosophical thought in half a minute, using nothing more than two pages, 300 words and a metaphorical image. Here in one unique volume you have the opportunity to pick the brains of our leading philosophers and understand complex concepts such as the categorical imperative without ending up in a darkened room with an ice pack on your head.
