Virtual Philosophy Book Review
Reviewed by scribd member

Virtual Philosophy by Jason Werbics is a wholly unique work from amodern-day philosopher that approaches our world and our place in itfrom an unexpected philosophical point of view. His fresh approach toanswering the questions we all have about life and our place in it canprobably be best framed by Werbics himself when he states “Fact,fiction and reality will be presented to you on a plate that cannot bedescribed as cold or hot, neither here or there. It could be the worldthat Nostradamus wrote about or it could be one where Einsteinbelieved: “God does not play dice!” The truth you discover will be yourown.”Werbics does what any true philosopher has ever done – he shares hisperspective, personal life experience and his observations of it all andmost importantly – he questions everything.

Or you. Itcompletely avoids the use of the typical philosophical jargon and over-used academic references to past philosophers and their conclusionsthat can stymie any but those who spend their lives immersed in thatparticular field of study. This is a philosophical book written to amuse,enlighten and challenge the reader to discover their own truth ratherthan trying to convince us to embrace the author’s beliefs. And sinceat the end of the day, philosophy is really all about the questions we
