A full-colour illustrated tour through philosophy’s most famous – and most mind-bending – ideas

I Think Therefore I Am, Existentialism, Dialectical Materialism? The Socratic Method and Deconstruction? Sure, you know what they all mean. That is, you’ve certainly heard of them. But do you know enough about them to join a dinner party debate or dazzle the bar with your knowledge?

30-SECOND PHILOSOPHIES takes a revolutionary approach to getting a grip on the 50 most significant schools of philosophy. The book challenges leading thinkers to quit fretting about the meaning of meaning for a while and explain the most complex philosophical ideas – using nothing more than two pages, 300 words, and a metaphorical image.

Here, in one unique volume, you have the chance to pick the potted brains of our leading philosophers and understand complex concepts such as Kant’s Categorical Imperative without ending up in a darkened room with an ice pack on your head.

    A difficulty with Pascal’s argument is that it isn’t so easy simply to decide what to believe and, in particular, to believe in God if one actually thinks that it is very unlikely that God exists. And, even if one could do that, it is not obvious that God (at least, the Christian God) would be inclined to reward a person who came to believe in him on the basis of placing a bet.

    Plainly, things are moving, so there must be some first, Unmoved Mover back there that sets the whole chain in motion. This, Aquinas concludes, can only be God.

    Immanuel Kant argued that consistency is assured if we follow the categorical imperative: “Act only according to that maxim by which you can, at the same time, wish that it should become a universal law.”
