What do philosophers do when they philosophise? Books that deal with philosophy tell of great thinkers, their views and their lives. Philosophising itself remains in the dark. How it works, how it fosters creative and independent thinking, is now demonstrated by Jens Soentgen.
He introduces the most popular and effective practices of philosophy, not abstract, but as an entertaining game – closely associated with the invitation to play along. The illustrations by Nadia Budde effectively support the text and render the reading into pure pleasure.
