What Does It All Mean?

A Very Short Introduction to Philosophy

Thomas Nagel

In this cogent and accessible introduction to philosophy, the distinguished author of Mortal Questions and The View From Nowhere brings the central problems of philosophical inquiry to life, demonstrating why they have continued to fascinate and baffle thinkers across the centuries. Leading students into the consideration of nine philosophical questions, he states his own opinions but leaves the issues open, encouraging students to think for themselves about these fundamental problems.
