Savater addresses the questions that we ourselves must face: what is this 'I' that I take This book, by one of Spain's most eminent philosophers, provides a lively and very accessible introduction to philosophy. Savater addresses the questions that we ourselves must face: what is this 'I' that I take for granted? What does it mean for me to be in the world? In what sense am I free? And how does the idea of death affect my life?
In his discussion of concepts such as beauty, time and language, Savater frequently refers to earlier philosophers, yet he does so in a way that brings their ideas to life and shows their enduring relevance. Using quotations from the ancient Greeks through to more recent philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Sartre, Savater illustrates his own arguments, while also sketching a basic history of philosophical ideas.
The Questions of Life has already been translated into ten languages and has enjoyed enormous success, selling over 70 copies in Spain alone. It is an elegant and straightforward book that abstains from specialised terminology. It constitutes an ideal introductory text for those studying philosophy at A-Level or university, and will also be of great interest to the general reader.
