Anner addresses these uestions in a way that lets readers develop their own answers and in doing so he guides the readers through a history of philosophical thought in a clever conversational and even adventurous style This allows readers to think for themselves ask uestions themselves and to be philosophers themselv A really great intro to philosophy book and what really sparked my interestlove for philosophy The book briefly introduces the reader to major philosophical issues such as God evil science self mind soul knowledge free will society politics money and ethics and morality It is by no means a resource to read in depth on a particular topic but a great introduction to get you asking uestions about some of the major themes The topics are also introduced in a uniue way as a discussion between a young boy and his parents after having a dream where an old man shows him many examples that gets him asking lots of uestions Bowen writes these complex and confusing topics in a really easy and understandable way for people who have never read much philosophy before

The Dream Weaver One Boy's Journey through the Landscape of Reality

Pinkle encounters a world full of the unknown With the help of a mentor and a friend or two he sheds light on some of life's most difficult uestions How do we determine morality What is the meaning of life Does God exist How can we determine Truth Fairness What are the mind and soul like Ian in his playful curious m Overall This is a good SUPPLEMENT for any philosophy or logic course that s mathscience heavy and a uick run down of basic principles is okay If you use this to supplement a study for a conceptessay heavy philosophy course then this will fall short of your expectations A good uick read to change your outlook for the new year The Good This book really is able to explain philosophical concepts in a way that isn t foreign or loaded with words that confuse even I really like how the author was able to allow us to be able to make our own connections with the topic It helps to solidify things from my logic class The BadThe book does not go in depth the way that many people would want The book also uses a narrative to work through what was going on while alienating people because of juvenile narrative You couldn t even begin to go in depth because the main character is a child which keeps the discussion on the surface The UglyThere s no real clear mapping of each philosophical concept and what branch it relates to or even what the concept even is There was so much jumping around in the order of the concepts even going from one random branch of philosophy to another that I would have been confused on how the branches of philosophy are connected or not connected

Jack Bowen's novel is like traveling with Alice to a Wonderland inhabited by the greatest philosophers and scientists who ever lived A triumph Wenda O'Reilly PhD President Birdcage Press and Author The Impressionist Art Game How sure can you be that you're not dreaming right now The hero of The Dream Weaver young Ian PROs Lots of topics covered Simple and interesting intro to philosophy Opinions of many philosophersCONs Too simplistic even for an introduction Very bad ideas are made to seem tenableThis is a very broad book attempting to cover most philosophical topics self mind ethics metaphysics science etc and does a pretty good job at showing different philosophical thoughts across the millennia Unfortunately with such a broad scope many influential philosophers are overlooked particularly contemporary ones and the ones that are talked about are naturally dumbed down My main problem with the book is that every argument is treated as eual even when the argument is obviously terrible and has been refuted thousands of times One such example is Paley s watchmaker argument which he made pre Darwin and has since been shown to be untenable The author pretends like it is perfectly acceptable to dismiss evolution and pretend we are the product of magic This is not good philosophy I d recommend getting an introduction book that focuses on single philosophical topics

    A textbook barely disguised as a novela 14 year old who speaks and makes leaps of understanding like no 14 year old I have ever know the format of deconstruction then reconstruction of thoughts and marginal uotations that interrupt the narrative all made for an annoying readThe point of the book I gather is to help facilitate understanding of philisophical ideas and theories It did that and while my philosophy professor assured
