Quick Overview

Originally published as “The Duck that Won the Lottery”, this companion volume to “The Pig That Wants To Be Eaten” provides another rapid-fire selection of short, stimulating and entertaining capsules of philosophy. This time the focus is on the bad argumentative moves people use all the time, in politics, the media and everyday life. Each entry will be around 700 words and will take as its starting point an example of questionable reasoning from the media or literature. As with “The Pig”, the aim is to give readers something to chew on and work through for themselves.
