Peter Cave’s best-selling trio of humorous philosophy titles — What’s Wrong With Eating People?, Can a Robot be Human?, and Do Llamas Fall in Love? — brought together in one big book.

What makes me, me – and you, you?

What is this thing called ‘love’?

Does life have a point?

Is ‘no’ the right answer to this question?

Philosophy transports us from the wonderful to the weird, from the funny to the very serious indeed. With the aid of tall stories, jokes, fascinating insights and common sense, Peter Cave offers a comprehensive survey of all areas of philosophy, addressing the big puzzles in ethics and politics, metaphysics and knowledge, religion and the emotions, aesthetics and logic. Replete with a smorgasbord of amusing and mind-boggling examples, The Big Think Book is perfect for anyone who delights in life’s conundrums.
