Book Summary of You Kant Make It Up!: Strange Ideas From History\'s Greatest Philosophers

Drawing on the writings of the great philosophers, You Kant Make it Up sends the reader on thrilling, non-stop tour of their most outrageous and counter-intuitive conclusions. Harry Potter is real. Matter doesn’t exist. Dan Brown is better than Shakespeare. All these statements stem from philosophy’s greatest minds, from Plato to Nietzsche. What were they thinking? Overflowing with compelling arguments for the downright strange – many of which are hugely influential today – popular philosopher Gary Hayden shows that just because something is odd, doesn’t mean that someone hasn’t argued for it. Spanning ethics, logic, politics, sex and religion, this unconventional introduction to philosophy will challenge your assumptions, expand your horizons, infuriate, entertain and amuse you.

Nikki March 06, 2012 review from Goodreads

This is another book vaguely like the books of philosophy puzzles I was reading, with a very similar structure and tone. It's very simple to understand; it often didn't go beyond my GCSE and A Level Religious Studies classes, and none of it went beyond what I studied in my first year, when I took...
