conceptual tensions in contemporary life
About the Book
These jaunty essays on philosphical themes that cut through contemporary existence examine the conceptual tensions that define us and confine us. Non-technical, addressed at a general audience, the essays seek to free us from our stuck and unreflective stances, and to exorcise the semantic demons that oppress us and hold us in thoughtless thrall. Logical rigour meets love of paradox to produce therapeutic puns.
