The Joy of Philosophy Summary

The Joy of Philosophy: Thinking Thin Versus the Passionate Life by Professor Robert C. Solomon

This work tries to put the fun back in philosophy, recapturing the heart-felt confusion and excitement that originally brings us all into philosophy. Rather than a critique of contemporary philosophy, it is more an attempt to engage in philosophy in a different kind of way, beginning with a re-evaluation of Socrates and the nature of philosophy and defending the passionate life in contrast to the calm life of thoughtful contemplation so often held up as an ideal by traditional philosophers. In short, it is an attempt to recapture the kind of philosophy that Nietzsche celebrated as a joyful wisdom. The author tries to break down the walls between academic philosophy and its lost audience, between thin logic and thick rhetoric, between philosophical reason and philosophical passion, between analytic and continental philosophy, between philosophy and life.
