Description - What Don't You Know? by Michael C. LaBossiere

Collected from LaBossiere's regular column in "The Philosopher's Magazine", this fascinating set of philosophical provocations focuses on matters that are of popular interest to the general public, yet are also philosophically significant.In this accessible and stimulating book, Michael C. LaBossiere takes a provocative look at issues in contemporary politics, culture and society through the lens of philosophy. Collected from LaBossiere's regular column in "The Philosopher's Magazine", this fascinating set of philosophical provocations assumes no background in philosophy and focuses on matters that are of popular interest to the general public, yet are also philosophically significant.Topics range across a whole host of controversial issues that are of genuine interest to the reader, including same sex marriage, video games, gene therapy, true love, chance, torture, gender, God, the media, and freedom. LaBossiere approaches each issue in a fascinatingly philosophical manner, providing an appealing alternative to the vast volume of strident and irrational approaches that are all too common in today's media. Articulate, timely and, above all, provocative, this exciting book is a must-read for anyone with an interest in philosophy and current affairs.
