Product Overview

"Meaning and Mystery" offers a challenge to the way Philosophy has traditionally approached the issue of belief in God as a theoretical problem, proposing instead a form of reflection more appropriate to the practical nature of the issue. Makes use of abundant illustrative material, from both literature, such as "Les Miserables," Edwin Abott''s "Flatland," Yann Martel''s "Life of Pi" and Leo Tolstoy''s "A Confession," and popular culture, such as advertisements, the television series "Joan of Arcadia" and the film "Stranger Than Fiction"Uses imaginative scenarios to offer explanations of central conceptsIncorporates theories on human thought and behavior in exploring the formation of religious beliefWritten in a style that is accessible to readers with little background knowledge of philosophy
