Philosophy Bites

Features an excellent line-up of philosophers from Britain and North America
The dialogues offer lively, personal views of philosophy
Will communicate philosophy to a broad readership

Take 25 of the liveliest philosophers of our time. Talk to each about one of the most intriguing topics you can think of—from ethics to aesthetics to metaphysics. The result is a Philosophy Bite—a lively, informal conversation that brings the subject into focus.

First made public on the enormously popular Philosophy Bites podcast, these entertaining, personal, and illuminating conversations are presented in print. The result is a book that is a taster for the whole enterprise of philosophy, and gives unexpected insights into hot topics spanning ethics, politics, metaphysics, aesthetics, and the meaning of life.
