Julian Baggini


From the writer of the "hugely entertaining"(Publishers Weekly) The Pig that desires to Be Eaten, classes in debunking the defective arguments we pay attention each day

This most up-to-date publication from the pop philosophy writer of The Pig that desires to Be Eaten tackles an forever interesting sector of well known debate-the defective argument. Julian Baggini presents a rapid-fire choice of brief, stimulating, and wonderful rates from a variety of recognized humans in politics, the media, and leisure, together with Donald Rumsfeld, Emma Thompson, Tony Blair, invoice Clinton, and Chris Martin. each one access takes as its start line an instance of hugely questionable-though oddly persuasive-reasoning from a large number of topics. As Baggini teases out the common sense within the illogical, armchair philosophers and aficionados of the absurd will locate themselves nodding their heads as they giggle out loud. The Duck That gained the Lottery is ideal fodder for any cocktail get together and natural excitement for a person who loves a great mind tornado.
