Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Phillips (educator, writer, and founder of the Society for Philosophical Inquiry) is a man on a mission: to revive the love of questions that Socrates inspired long ago in ancient Athens. In this account of his travels in which he gathers people together wherever he can (in caf<'e>s, schools, bookstores, senior centers, etc.), he recalls what led him to start his program and recreates some of the most invigorating sessions in which he aims to inspire every curious mind to start asking questions in order to live a more examined life. He also draws from his own learning to introduce other philosophers in the Socratic tradition.
