What does evolution mean today? Do we have free will? How is technology changing the way we understand life? Where is God? Does art have a value? Is science the new philosophy? What are the ethics of making war? How does language hold meaning? Is freedom possible?
These are only some of the questions addressed in What Philosophers Think, a collection of interviews with some of the world's leading philosophers and intellectuals.
The interviews cover a wide range of themes, including sex, religion, politics, language, consciousness, evil, feminism and art. They offer a unique insight into the minds behind the great ideas of today.
Always lively, provocative and accessible, these interviews get to the heart of today's most vital questions.
