The Philosopher's Toolkit provides all the intellectual equipment necessary to engage with and participate in philosophical argument, reading and reflection. Each of its 87 entries explains how to use an important concept or argumentative technique accurately and effectively.Beginning with the basics of argumentation, the book moves on to deal with tools for assessment and criticism, as well as the limits of argumentation and some of the radical critiques of standard philosophical methodology. Written in an engaging style, the entries are brought to life with vivid and colourful examples and are accompanied by suggestions for further reading. This ingenious compendium of the methods and techniques of philosophy can be used in a variety of ways; as an introduction to the essentials of philosophical reflection, as a comprehensive course on philosophical method, or as a reference book to which readers can turn to find quick and clear accounts of key concepts and methods. The Philosopher's Toolkit is essential reading for anyone who wants to philosophise well.

    哲學除了其中的思想外,最重要的就是其中的辨證。這箱"工具箱"帶入了一些基礎的邏輯學作為預備知識,再稍加介紹哲學中各個概念,包刮:先驗/後驗、主觀/客觀、語法/語意等等。大致介紹各式各樣的思想工具後,再介紹20世紀後法蘭克福學派的批判理論。這本簡單的書囊括了哲學很大的部份,但卻因幾乎全包了,而廣泛但各個內容不精。

    I pick this up because of the high rating in various book review site. May be a good book for readers with serious interest in philosophy. But not an easy book for causal reading.

    就說是工具箱了,告訴你有哪些工具,以及如何使用,但是真的叫你疊床架屋,或見招拆招,又怎麼使得出來?並不是降龍十七掌一次打完,就叫降龍十八掌的。
    當作參考索引,等哪天真的能內化了,才是無招勝有招,但是真有這樣的人嗎?

    真的太抽象不好讀~
    雖然沒看過原文版,但我覺得翻譯的品質並不是很好(這是從他翻譯費曼那句話看出來的)。
    而且有幾個部份舉的例子也犯了書中講的錯誤。
    但總括來說是一本值得參考的書。

    [快速上手]
    英國與美國知名哲學專家的共同著作
    工具箱的分類概念加上技術手冊的編寫手法
    透顯出哲學獨有的純粹與超然

    [有感而發]
    哲學演繹方式向來與表達(文字或語言)有絕對相關
    值得喝采的是沒有因為翻譯的隔閡
    去抹煞了書中每個反覆輪轉到快暈頭的理論邏輯
    反而協助我重新定義部份過去錯誤的關鍵字詞認知
    是一本像德國麵包般堅韌但值得咀嚼再三的好書

    哲學和推理在知識底層其實是連通的
    (硬底子的偵探小說愛好者就知道我在說什麼)
    覺得柯南很白濫或是克莉絲蒂太童話的讀者
    歡迎勇敢跨領域聞香下馬~
