Reviews

"Baggini, who has one foot in the academic world of philosophy, another in the world of journalism, expertly straddles the abstract and the practical. . . . Blending lucidity and passion, Baggini shows how much richer and more varied reason is than often supposed. Ultimately, he reminds us, the outcome of our reasonings has to depend not on objective truth but on what "we feel compelled to accept as objective."--Jane O'Grady, Financial Times "It provides an extremely readable introduction to many issues related to reasoning."--Choice Won the 2017 Choice Award for Outstanding Academic Title "Julian Baggini has written a masterpiece, and what a timely masterpiece it is. The toxic gloating of 'gut feelings, ' hateful politics and heart-over-head attacks on good sense urgently need an antidote. Baggini has risen to the occasion. In this compelling book, he is fair-minded, incisive and bold; he never ducks the hard questions, but faces them head-on. And, luckily for the reader, he has the breadth of knowledge to pull this off, the wit to make it fun, and the clarity to keep us turning the page."--Patricia S. Churchland, author of Touching a Nerve: Our Brains, Our Selves
