"The unexamined life is not worth living," according to Socrates,
but pursuing the examined life strikes many as daunting,
unappealing and even unnecessary. Is philosophy important? Why do I
need philosophy if I have the Bible? Aren't philosophers simply
engaged in meaningless disputes that are irrelevant to everyday
life? Mark Foreman addresses these and other questions in this
"prelude" to the subject. Unlike a full introduction to philosophy,
this book is a preliminary discussion that dispels
misunderstandings and explains the rationale for engaging in
philosophical reasoning. In the first half of the book, Foreman
defines the task of philosophy, compares it to other disciplines
and demonstrates its practical value to Christians interested in
developing a more thoughtful faith. The second half introduces the
reader to logic and argumentation, the essential tools of a
philosopher. Concise and straightforward, Prelude to Philosophy is
a guide for those looking to embark on the "examined life."
