"Oh, no, not another philosophy book!"

After twenty-six centuries of reflecting and writing, what can be said about philosophy that hasn't already been said? This book is different because it is written for students who are not interested in philosophy or who are struggling to understand it.

Professor Malikow makes it easy to understand the sophisticated ideas and profound truths of philosophy by his use of everyday language, analogies, examples, and stories mixed with a bit of humor.
Professor Malikow's book wonderfully addresses a problem philosophy professors have confronted with great frequency—how to attract the attention of the student who has little interest in philosophy. Using relevant and timely examples, Dr. Malikow introduces the various sub-fields of philosophy in an understandable, engaging manner.
