The Little Book Of Philosophy Reviews


"He is so good at the timely application of those questions that make philosophy interesting... Here at last is someone who can lay these matters out both intelligently and straightforwardly" * Guardian *

About Andre Comte-Sponville


Professor of Philosophy at the Sorbonne, Andre Comte-Sponville is the author of a number of books, including the international bestseller A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues, which has been translated into 24 languages. In a country that reveres philosophers, Comte-Sponville is latest in a line of French star philosophers that runs from Sartre, through Derrida, Finkielkraut and Berni-Henry Levy. Unlike the last three, his accessibility and refusal to fly in the face of common sense has made him famous across Europe.
