An illuminating critique of modern thought from America's "Philosopher for Everyman" (Time).
Ten Philosophical Mistakes examines ten errors in modern thought and shows how they have led to serious consequences in our everyday lives. It teaches how they came about, how to avoid them, and how to counter their negative effects.read more
Required reading for anyone interested in philosophy. I docked it one star because Adler's style is a bit hard to bear at times. Before he explains something he tells you exactly why and how he's going to explain it and then says that before he does that he must explain something else; and then he proceeds to tell you why and how he's going to explain something else before he explains something. Also, I think the book is a bit skimpy on the *defense* of the proper philosophical ideas. Adler seems to sometimes just declare what the proper philosophical position is. NEVERTHELESS, this is a great book which is invaluable to any honest reader of philosophy who is searching for truth.read more
