Reviews - What do our customers think?
101  Jul 3, 2007
I have not finished it yet, but it seems to be a very intersting book, more of a brain-teaser then really a philosphy book. Diiscussions at the end of the book are not solutions, but more stuff to think about.

A C Tort
 
A very good intro to Philosophy. Recommended!  Jan 15, 2007
No matter how hard I tried, I never could finish a whole book on philosophy. This is the first one I made through. It's not the common books that talked a lot on one or a few particular concepts or philosophists, but many short, interesting and life relevant "questions" with partial "answers/solutions" or sheerly "suggestions". I like very much its light and non authoritative style. Or should I say I hate the "I am absolutely right" attitude of many other authors/philosophists. Afterall, per Pascal, "only a good philosopher can laugh at philosophy." A good appetizer or food for thought to those who like to know more about philosophy but had been frustrated beforehand. Recommended!
 
masterpiece of eccentric genius  Dec 22, 2002
I have read both the English edition and now have the Chinese edition too. I quite agree with what it says about the book, viz: this is a masterpiece of eccentric genius with a world-sweeping humorous philosophy. After all, does philosophy have to be cut and dried and boring?
Dr Martin Cohen, would never agree even if he has to be bitten to death twice, as the Chinese proverb has it. Because what he hates most,are those boring philosophic theories and the boring philosophers. In the book, he even suggests some philosophers are like vampires,shuddering and covering their eyes in fear and loathing at the clarity of a well-constructed sentence.
The humorous Dr Martin Cohen is in fact the editor of the Philosopher, the highly respected English Journal, founded in 1923, for which thefamous John Dewey, Bertrand Russell and so on used to write, as well as the frequent stirrer of waves and blower of wind in today's Britishphilosophical world.
In his book, Dr Cohen has collected 101 interesting Philosophy Problems. Together with his humorous and sharp commentary, these provide readers with a unique experience and in-depth understanding that philosophy is actually a game which everyone is able to play.
The readers, as if charmed by Martin's spell, will follow his instructions and dance with him. The book has been translated into many other languages. Dr Martin Cohen says, "if the boring philosophers find this all too easy, let them answer some of the questions!"

almost iconoclastic  May 19, 2001
MYWYB2's main problem with the book (see review below) -- apart from alleged problems with style and translation -- is that he seems to miss its point. "Philosophy Problems" covers more or less the entire depth and breadth of philosophy, in other words an entire library.

This is not a book for experts, it is a wonderful appetiser for people who do not have an awful lot of experience with philosophy. Cohen's achievement is to break things down for those readers and at the same time to narrate tongue-in-cheek and in a way that makes it quite clear that behind his brief answers, there is whole world to be discovered. He does not pretend to know it all, but challenges readers to think and to discover things for themselves. In my opinion, the charm of the book is exactly its incompleteness, its almost iconoclastic freshness. It is a book many philosophers would like to have written --

Maybe that explains mywyb2's editorial furore.
