Fascinating thought games of great thinkers

Thought games – or thought experiments – have been the tool of philosophy for more than two thousand years. After all, they help find answers to the fundamental questions of life. The great philosophers developed such thought games as a way of approaching topics such as ethics, morals, liberty and justice: How would we live if we were immortal? If my neighbour and I were to swap brains – who would live where? How can a dog on a chain be happy? We start to think – philosophy has taken hold of us…

Yves Bossart has collected the most important thought games, described them clearly and understandably and wets readers' appetites to find the answers themselves.

Unusual and well-founded – infotainment at its best for readers of Richard David Precht and Rolf Dobelli.

"Seduced is a good word here. He has done this with clear language, and with a particular playfulness and even modesty."
