All We Need Is a Paradigm: Essays on Science, Economics, and Logic from the Harvard Review of Philosophy
S. Phineas Upham
Open Court, 2009 - Philosophy - 226 pages
The Harvard Review of Philosophy has long been a forum for new thoughts in the field — this collection includes some of the most important essays from that publication. Exploring the unexpected ways that philosophy impacts our world, this book considers the discipline as an essential element in our understanding of science, economics, and logic. This fascinating read for both laypeople and those familiar with philosophical concepts delves deep into questions of human nature, intellectual thought, and the manner in which our world operates. Using several different approaches, including puzzles, essays, and songs, this book challenges our basic assumptions about how things work.
