The Deepest Human Life
AN INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY FOR EVERYONE
Sometimes it seems like you need a PhD just to open a book of

the same way that we leave science to scientists. Scott Samuelson
thinks this is tragic, for our lives as well as for philosophy.
In The Deepest Human
Life he takes philosophy back from the specialists and
restores it to its proper place at the center of our humanity,
rediscovering it as our most profound effort toward understanding,
as a way of life that anyone can live.
