Description - The Philosophy Gym by Stephen Law

Where did the universe come from? Is time travel possible? Are genetically designed babies morally acceptable? If you have ever asked yourself such questions then you have already begun to think philosophically. This book is for those who want to take the next step. Stephen Law poses questions about some of the most important philosophical issues of today - and yesterday. Light-hearted questions about whether a pickled sheep is really art rub shoulders with more profound and time-honoured fears about whether God exists. In this new way of looking at philosophy, Stephen Law illustrates the problem with a story and then lets both sides of the argument battle it out in clear, easily digestible and intelligent prose. By separating each issue into a distinct section, it is possible to dip in and out in any order and at any time you like.
