Philosophy and Living
by

Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide
ISBN/ASIN: B000RZVI68

Description:
Shall I live for ever? What am I? Am I free or a machine? Is there a God? Is the universe such that the good must ultimately prevail? What is good, anyhow? What is the right relation between an individual and society? What ought we to do with our lives? What is life all about? A man's first approach to philosophy is often due to the hope of finding clear answers to such questions.
