Publisher's Summary

The perfect introduction to the central ideas of philosophy now available in audio format.Have you ever lain awake at night fretting over how we can be sure of the reality of the external world? Perhaps we are in fact disembodied brains, floating in vats at the whim of some deranged puppet-master? If so, you are not alone - and what's more, you are in exalted company. For this question and other ones like it have been the stuff of philosophical rumination from Plato to Popper.In a series of accessible and engaging short lectures delivered in the deep chocolate tones of reader Laurence Kennedy, 50 Philosophy Ideas You Really Need to Know introduces and explains the problems of knowledge, consciousness, identity, ethics, belief, justice, and aesthetics that have engaged the attention of thinkers from the era of the ancient Greeks to the present day.

Good overview

Good brief overview of key thought leaders in Philosophy and what their contributions were to the field. The 50 ideas series I find very informative for a general over view that then helps me to focus my future reading list and 50 Philosophy Ideas was up to the challenge.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book is just a list of philosphy ideas, with very short descriptions of each. I suppose this might be useful for someone reviewing for a test, but as an audiobook it just has no purpose.
