The Outer Limits: More Mysteries from the Philosophy Files Summary


The Outer Limits: More Mysteries from the Philosophy Files by Stephen Law

Stephen Law follows THE PHILOSOPHY FILES with a second book of philosophical conundrums for teenagers. This time he asks such questions as Do Miracles Happen? Why Do These Words Mean Something? and Do I Know the Sun will Rise Tomorrow? You can dip into the arguments that interest you, in eight chapters where the themes are set up in witty scenarios and then debated. There are wacky thought experiments to work out and a variety of characters appear - some of them Martians. As in THE PHILOSOPHY FILES, there are hundreds of lively cartoons running through the book. Stephen Law is a brilliant communicator with a passion to make young people think for themselves. As the GUARDIAN said: 'It's philosophy in action rather than philosophy in aspic...a real philosophy book for kids - which students and adults could enjoy too - finally exists'.

The Outer Limits: More Mysteries from the Philosophy Files Reviews


"Written in comical style, punctuated by excellent cartoons from Daniel Postgate, the book offers a very useful guide to the logical frameworks underpinning all true philosophical investigation based on very practical if usually humorous situations." Yoga & Health Magazine, Sep 03 "There is something addictive about this book...The Outer Limits is as much about how to think as it is about nailing answers, and humour is all part of the process." Guardian Children's Books Supplement, Autumn 03
