Critics’ Reviews

“A delightful catalogue of over 250 philosophical puzzles – ranging from entertaining pastimes to deep philosophical problems.”
Peter Vallentyne
“Proving the pleasures of philosophy has never been so easy, thanks to Martin’s compendium of philosophical conundrums; it will serve as an irresistible enticement to philosophical reflection.”
Geoffrey Sayre-McCord
“An excellent sourcebook, which demonstrates in interesting ways the connections between these puzzles and the great issues that philosophers have debated.”
Peter van Inwagen
“If I could do it all over again, I wish that the first book on philosophy I had read was this one. It would have saved me a lot of false starts, and made philosophy even more intriguing than it turned out to be.”
Roland Puccetti
“A delightful collection of brain-teasers and puzzles! There is a lot of nourishment here for the imagination, and for the philosophical intelligence.”
John M. Dolan
