Staff Review: Philosophy & The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Philosophy & The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Editor: Nicholas Joll
Are you interested in diving into the nebulous black hole that is philosophy, but you don’t know where to start? As the cover of the aforementioned mentioned Guide recommends – DON’T PANIC! Let an alien on a fact-finding mission, a two-headed hedonist and a complete dork be your guides.
Nicholas Joll has assembled a crack team of philosophers and with the help of Douglas Adams’ delightful characters debates real-world philosophical conundrums – the ethics of eating meat, violence for entertainment’s sake, what makes life meaningful, for starters – and makes it all a little more accessible to the those who’re already well familiar with the Hitchhiker’s milieu. Just remember to have your towel with you at all times.

I’ve always regretted not being talented enough to play 92 games of football for Brazil like Pelé. But I can process a stock order like nobody’s business. Seriously.
