Publisher's Summary

Be an instant expert on philosophy and Bluff Your Way® with all those who think about thinking. No effort required, just a sense of humour. From "the cynics" to "semantics", and from "props" to "propositions" here's everything you need to know to be thought to be in the know.

Extracts from the book:

Historical forces
No-one knows why philosophy started when it did: ambitious bluffers of a Marxist bent could try to account for it in terms of an inexorable dialectic of historical forces, but we wouldn't recommend it.

This and That
Of course, any sensible theory is neither one thing nor the other; and it's generally safe to say something to that effect without fear of having to say just how much of one, or the exact proportion of the other.

This is a Bluffer's Guide®. Bluffer's Guides®, Bluffer's Guide®, Bluffer's® and Bluff Your Way® are Registered Trademarks.

What the Critics Say

"The Bluffer's Guide to Philosophy (my main reference book) put it rather neatly when discussing Existentialism: 'Analytic philosophers are inclined to despise Existentialism for not being sufficiently analytic: Existentialists are inclined to despise Anglo-Saxon analytic philosophers for simply not being sufficiently.'" (The Editor, Philosophy Now)
"Bluffer's Guides are a quick read and chock full of the basic information on any subject that's needed to pass yourself off as knowledgeable." (Toronto Globe and Mail)
"The word 'philosophy' may turn you off immediately. Take heart - and arm yourself with a copy of this book. Behind all the quips is a firm grounding in the subject." (The Keswick Reminder)
