My favourite book

 

Think was the first philosophy book recommended to me and reading it encouraged me to learn more about the field of philosophy.  This book didn’t shy away from big questions about truth, knowledge, free will and existence. In this book, Blackburn goes through some of the most important and renowned philosophers including Descartes, Hume and Kant. It is no secret that traditionally philosophy books can be written in old fashioned and dense language that can be hard to decipher, but Blackburn breaks down these ideas into terms that are much easier to understand. It is the perfect introduction to philosophy and made me question the world around me and all my views.

 

How you think about what you are doing affects how you do it, or whether you do it at all’.
