Knowledge: The Root of All Happiness
Even so, it deals with some core concepts of philosophy. "What is the univer's nature?" "Who are we?" "Where are we from?" "What is the goal of life?" and "How Should we live?"
In this book author M. A. Risso explores several key concepts of philosophy, yet does so in a way that although it is designed to be read by everyone, it not in the least bit condescending.
It is concise and is deliberately not over-long, avoiding the temptation to go into too much detail of specific theories and philosophies.
In his introduction M. A. Risso makes a very compelling and highly pertinent point: " Science and religion are often at loggerheads, buy they do not need to be. With our limited senses, it is simply not possible for humans to understand everything in life and we should have the humility to admit this."
The book is an interesting primer for those intending to study philosophy or those who want to know the basics of philosophical thoughts and theories.
