    1 thought on “What Would Socrates Say?”

    1. I took a Sunday and read this book in one day. It was a nice experience, interesting, absorbing, with different philosophy experts weighing in on different topics.

    2. Reading this book was a game changing eye opener for me. I shifted my focus on everything thanks to this important work.

    3. I bought this book online, thinking it would be about what the title says 'What would Socrates say?'. The book summary on the back cover was misleading, to say the least. The book is written in a Q&A form, which is fine. What is not fine is that a. the book is not about what it says it is b. there is no direct reference to specific Schools of Philosophical thinking (or Socrates, for that matter), just random quotes here and there supposedly supporting vague arguments and weak examples. The q [...]

    4. At first I thought I was a victim of bait and switch. This is not a book of contemporary questions answered by quotes from classical philosophers. And I would have quickly figured that out if I had taken even a minute or so to thumb through it. But it was cheap on a remainder table and it looked like fun, Socrates remains silent for the most part, although he and other big guns may be occasionally referenced by one of the twenty-two academics who answer reader inquiries on the website AskPhiloso [...]

    5. Membutuhkan cukup usaha untuk mencoba menikmati buku ini dengan menghilangkan ekspektasi akan sajian-sajian pemikiran yang bisa semengganggu kajian berbasis (atau lebih tepatnya, mengangkat kata 'filsafat') pada umumnya.Disusun dalam empat bab kelompok pertanyaan yang disebut Immanuel Kant sebagai dasar pertanyaan dalam refleksi filsafat: 'Apa yang dapat saya ketahui?', 'Apa yang seharusnya saya lakukan?', 'Apa yang boleh saya harapkan?' - dan 'Siapakah manusia itu?', buku ini menyajikan pertany [...]

    6. Baca dari Juni baru selesai September. HeheLama selesainya karena saya lagi males mikir pas lagi baca. Banyak kosakata ala filsuf yang gak dikasih catatan kaki jadi nggak ngerti artinya.Tapi beberapa pemikirannya dalam menjawab pertanyaan sederhana membuat saya memahami perihal itu, meskipun menggunakan bahasa yang lumayan sulit dimengerti.

    7. Saya membaca versi terjemahan indonesianya. Menurut saya, akan lebih baik membaca yang versi inggris. Karena buku ini bersifat filsafat, jadi kadang sering menemukan kata-kata 'rancu' dalam buku ini. Over all, buku ini bagus. Banyak menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan sederhana yang kadang tidak sempat terpikirkan.

    8. It's probably unfair to write reviews of books that I can't finish reading, but whatever Found it on the shelves and it looked interesting. It's a compilation of Q&A from a philosophy website. Questions asked by ordinary people with answers that mostly just bored me to tears.

    9. There isn't really much to say. If you don't know the basics of Philosophy and the most common questions about it, then you should read this book. Otherwise, it's not really interesting. The philosophers weren't really insightful except on a few things.

    10. Se trata de un libro que recoge una serie de preguntas publicadas en una web de filosofía, y contestadas por varios filósofos. En algunas no profundiza mucho en el tema pero hay algunas respuestas que hacen que el libro merezca la pena. Es una lectura ligera y entretenida.

    11. Loads of questions about love, morals, ethics, and life in general answered by philosophers using conversational language. Socrates would approve.

    12. Thought provoking questions answered in the same fashion. Pretty deep stuff at times. Interesting enough to read over and over.
