The What Every Catholic Should Know series is intended for the average faithful Catholic who wants to know more about Catholic faith and culture. The authors in this series take a panoramic approach to the topic of each book aimed at a non-specialist but enthusiastic readership. Already published titles in this series include: literature, salvation, mercy, being Catholic, God, and philosophy.
Just what is philosophy? Is there objective truth? Is self-knowledge possible? What is being? What is man's relation to nature? Is it possible for human reason to know God? If there is a God, why is there evil? What is happiness and how can we achieve it? If you've ever wondered about the answers to any of these questions, this is the book for you! These and dozens of other crucial questions are asked and answered in this easy-to-read book by one of the best-known philosophers alive today. Every Catholic should own one book on philosophy. This is it.
