In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help?

Rob Newman attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.

“Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious… A delightfully digestible dose of brain food.” ***** The Times, 2018 

“Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.” ****The Guardian, 2018
