Description

Philosophy (from the Ancient Greek philosophia meaning ‘love of wisdom’), is what happens when youths are drunk or stoned, or when a lot of very intelligent people get together and realise they have nothing else to write a paper on this year. Philosophy fills books and fictional works. It lurks in the wisdom of the old and in the ramblings of the mad. It is scrawled across toilet walls where even ‘shaz 4 kev’ would form the basis of an argument the likes of which would keep an academic busy until the sun revolves around the Earth.

There are no original thoughts or questions. In the end, everything is plagiarism. Life is just one big regurgitation.

However, these facts don’t stop you from feeling special and insightful when you eventually do think up something really, really deep. None of the thoughts in this book are new, or if they were then they won’t be by the time they reach you.

Bertrand Russell wrote that ‘the point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as to seem not worth stating, and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it’. Just remember – if you can argue it, it’s philosophy. So sit back, put on your favourite smoking jacket, draw your pipe, and fill it with cannabis: for today, gentlemen, we shall philosophise.

Browning as a Philosophical and Religious Teacher

The purpose of this book is to deal with Browning, not simply as a poet, but rather as the exponent of a system of ideas on moral and religious subjects, which may fairly be called a philosophy.
