Product description


`Tetralogue has an abundance of merits. It is lively and frequently incisive. It pursues several important philosophical issues efficiently and without remaining on well-trodden ground. It does not require any academic background. It could contribute usefully to undergraduate courses that address any of its topics.' Earl Conee, Notre Dame Philosphical Reviews `The reader can certainly appreciate the value of trained minds and clear thinking as the dialogue proceeds -- this is an offbeat and engaging introduction to logic using generic examples to which many readers will relate.' David Lorimer, Network Review `This small volume would make a great present.' Adam Ford, Church Times `Tetralogue is presented as an accessible, fun-to-read introduction to philosophical themes for the non-initiated; at the same time, the initiated may enjoy seeing these topics embedded in apparently mundane discussions.' Catarina Dutilh Novaes, Times Higher Education `This is a serious book that is also a lot of fun.' Richard Baron, Analysis and Synthesis Blog `It is a valuable introduction to rich intellectual topics which await further exploration for those with an appetite for more.' Matthew A. Benton, Marginalia
