Contrariwise: conceptual tensions in everyday life
These jaunty essays on philosophical themes that cut through contemporary existence examine the conceptual tensions that define us and confine us. Non-technical, addressed at a general audience, the essays seek to free us from our stuck and unreflective stances, and to exorcise the semantic demons that oppress us and hold us in thoughtless thrall. Logical rigor meets love of paradox to produce therapeutic puns. A veritable romp of philosophical fun. Poignant, personal essays exploring pairs of opposing or seemingly opposing concepts, exposing the contradictions running through everyday life, and expanding the horizons of everyday thinking. Philosophy with a pulse. -- From publisher description.
