內容簡介

以問答方式告訴讀者,什麼是哲學?它包含那些重要議題?

什麼是道德?我們有沒有自由意志?我們可以客觀地經驗任何事物嗎?什麼是藝術?我們如何分辨對與錯?這水杯是半滿還是半空?快樂是什麼?自由是什麼?如果有神,為什麼讓人類受苦?人有人權,動物可以有動物權嗎?愛比被愛還要好?有沒有問題是科學無法解答的?文字有意義嗎?歷史是否已經終結?我們有靈魂嗎?死後有生命嗎?

以上這些大哉問,困擾了人類文明史上許多偉大的哲學家,他們引發辯論,以擴大人類思想的視野。作者試圖追溯歷史上偉大哲學家的著作,從古希臘到20世紀法國的知識沙龍,以回答上述的問題,並且展現隨著時間發展的哲學概念。因此,我們可以看到,哲學史上重要哲學家對同一個議題有不同看法的演變,間接也建立我們獨立思考的能力。

Have you ever found yourself alone with your thoughts? Have you ever been asked if the glass is half full or half empty? Do you wonder what true happiness is or how to attain it? Or maybe nothing really matters if everything is just an illusion or a dream?

These ideas are some of the central questions of philosophical enquiry that have engaged, troubled and exasperated some of the greatest minds throughout the history of human civilization, provoking argument and debate in an attempt to broaden the horizons of human thought.

Author Alain Stephen seeks to explore some of these key questions by tracing their origins in the writings of prominent thinkers through the ages, from the colonnades of ancient Greece to the intellectual salons of twentieth-century France, and show how these ideas and concepts have developed over time.

Why We Think the Things We Think provides plenty of food for thought for both the amateur philosopher and enlightened thinker to digest.
