Why is There Something Rather Than Nothing?: 23 Questions from Great Philosophers

Why is There Something Rather Than Nothing?:
23 Questions from Great Philosophers

by Leszek Kolakowski
translated by Agnieszka Kolakowska
Basic Books , November 2007

A tour of Western thought by one of the world's most eminent philosophers – in a book that fits in the palm of your hand. How can we know anything? Why is there evil in the world? What is the source of truth? Is it possible for God not to exist? Here Leszek Kolakowski explores the essence of these ideas, introducing figures from Socrates to Thomas Aquinas, Descartes to Nietzsche, by concentrating on one single important philosophical question from each.
