What’s the best way to blood test a pot-bellied pig?
Should we tolerate intolerance?
In the wake of his enormously popular books, The Armchair Economist and More Sex is Safer Sex, Steven Landsburg uses concepts from maths, economics and physics to address the big questions in philosophy: Where does knowledge come from? What’s the difference between right and wrong? Do our beliefs matter? Is it possible to know everything?
Provocative, utterly entertaining and always surprising, The Big Questions challenges readers to re-evaluate their most fundamental beliefs and reveals the relationship between the loftiest philosophical quests and our everyday lives.
Steven E. Landsburg writes the popular ‘Everyday Economics’ column in Slate magazine and has also written for Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and other publications. He teaches in the department of economics at the University of Rochester.
