About the Book

Every society has rules, dogmas, and convictions. Some societies demand for unquestionable obedience to what they hold as true. However, freedom of speech, freedom of belief, and freedom of the will demands we free ourselves from this kind of boxed obedience. Since the time of Plato, philosophers have typically been carrying out this mission by subjecting everyday convictions to a constructive, logical scrutiny with the aim of thrashing out inconsistencies, conjectures, and misconceptions. A philosopher aims at an attempt to reach at a critical standpoint, enabling one to do away with confusion and provide a solid, rational justification for what he or she retains on a given phenomenon or concept. For an in-depth understanding of how this can be achieved, this book is a must read.
