The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten: 100 Experiments for the Armchair Philosopher
Paperback  Paperback  
Both entertaining and startling, The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten offers one hundred philosophical puzzles that stimulate thought on a host of moral, social, and personal dilemmas. Taking examples from sources as diverse as Plato and Steven Spielberg, author Julian Baggini presents abstract philosophical issues in concrete terms, suggesting possible solutions while encouraging readers to draw their own conclusions:

Lively, clever, and thought-provoking, The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten is a portable feast for the mind that is sure to satisfy any intellectual appetite. BACKCOVER: "Thinking again is what this taut, incisive, bullet-hard book is dedicated to promoting."
G''The Sunday Times (London)

"This book is like the Sudoku of moral philosophy: apply your mind to any of its 'thought experiments' while stuck on the Tube, and quickly be transported out of rush-hour hell."
G''New Statesman
