by Martin Cohen (Author)

'A Nasty Transplant Problem', the 'Three Embryos Problem' come from the new field of medical ethics, whilst 'Deep Thought Speaks' raises issues in Artificial Intelligence. Each problem is presented with a separate discussion designed to stimulate hours of lively philosophical debate. The new edition includes: Many new problems, each with separate discussion; Classic and contemporary problems taken from the media to physics, medical ethics to sport. A fully revised and updated glossary of unfamiliar philosophical terms 101 Philosophy Problems, Second Edition combines wit with philosophical scholarship and is ideal for anyone interested in this exciting and stimulating topic.

Media Reviews
'Are all moral claims synthetic? Or analytic? Or a priori? Or a posteriori? Or both? Or neither? What about tables? Can you see one? Ask yourself: does it exist? Too easy? Go out of the room and ask yourself again. The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Obey the brain warning at the beginning and don't read all 101 problems at once. On free will: You don't always act yourself if you're suffering from a paranoid personality disorder.' - The Guardian
