    1. Martin Cohen is a well established author specializing in popular books in philosophy, social science and politics.His latest book is How to Live Wise and not so wise Advice from the Philosophers on Everyday Life.He is best known for his two introductions to philosophy, 101 Philosophy Problems Routledge 1999, 2001, 2007 and 101 Ethical Dilemmas Routledge 2002 2007 which despite being originally aimed at the academic market, between them have sold LOTS OF copies and been translated into 20 different languages He also published an anti history of great philosophers, Philosophical Tales 2008 for Blackwell His most recent projects include the UK edition of Philosophy for Dummies Wiley June 2010 Mind Games 31 days to rediscover your Brain Blackwell, July 2010 and The Doomsday MachineThe High Price of Nuclear Energy, the World s Most Dangerous Fuel co authored with Andrew McKillop The Doomsday Machine was discussed in the New York Times Green Blog, and bitterly condemned by the New Scientist.A book on Thought Experiments in science and philosophy was well reviewed despite being entitled confusingly perhaps Wittgenstein s Beetle, 2004 and other academic books include a mini book on Adam Smith and a reference guide to philosophy and ethics for Hodder Academic One of his favorite things is EXPLORING, not in reality but in books, and his anti travel book No Holiday 80 Places you DON T want to visit Disinformation Press, New York fits comfortably in that tradition.Martin now writes full time, but in the past has taught philosophy and social science at a number of universities in the UK and Australia, and was involved in a research project at Leeds University under George MacDonald Ross exploring ways to shift philosophy teaching away from the the mere study of philosophical facts and toward a view of philosophy as an activity A respected environmentalist, he wrote an influential series of articles in the Times Higher London about the politics of the climate change debate and he is sometimes allowed to review philosophy books there He has written discussion papers on environmental concerns for the European Parliament and been invited by the Chinese government to discuss ecological rights and indigenous communities.He is also the editor of THE PHILOSOPHER, a journal founded in 1923, which counts some of the best known names in Twentieth Century philosophy amongst its contributors His editorial strategy is to allow as wide a range of ideas as possible a forum in the Journal, and this often prints papers by non specialists with unusual and original ideas He is currently based in Aquitaine, France, down near the Pyrenees but travels often to the US and UK.

    2. "فلسفه به زبان آدمیزاد" اسم دوپهلویی است. زبان فلسفه چندان ساده نیست (خواه ناخواه) و ساده کردن آن بصورت "کپسولی" که آدم بخورد و فلسفه را از الف تا ی یاد بگیرد علاوه براینکه ممکن نیست، از آن چیزی هم باقی نمی گذارد. اما این کتاب این کار را نمی کند؛ نویسنده اش سعی می کند تا جایی که بتو [...]

    3. این کتاب بعد چند ماه تموم شد و اطلاعات خوبی ( و نه کامل) داشت.از شناخت تاریخ فلسفه تا ایده ها و تزهای فکری تا شخصیت ها موثرمطمئنا یکی از کتاهای خوب و مفیدی بود که مطالعه کردم.

    4. کتابی بود روان، ساده و با دیدی همه جانبه. هم فلسفه غرب را مرور کرده و هم به فلسفه شرق نگاهی انداخته. از نظراتی بهره جسته که در دیگر کتب مقدماتی به چشم نمی‌خورند. ارتباط‌ها را به خوبی نشان داده است.در کل، کتابی است که به حتی سه بار خواندن هم می‌ارزد.

    5. Overall, this book served it’s purpose which was to introduce me to philosophy in preparation for reading some of Colin Wilson’s books. I have read a few ‘For Dummies’ books before so I am familiar with their style. This particular book, I thought, was slightly more formal or academic sounding where as usually these ‘For Dummies’ books are more casual and light-hearted. This isn’t meant as a criticism because on the plus side it is very informative with plenty of tidbits of extra e [...]

    6. اینقدر پراکنده و گسسته بود مطالبش که نصفه و نیمه ولش کردم

    7. This is an extremely entertaining book even though I am not sure, if always accurate:I am from Germany and have never heard of a music group called "Landser" according to him one of the most popular groups in Germany. But maybe he was just sarcastic :-)

    8. در کل کتاب بدی نبود هرچند به نظرم من را به هدفی که کتاب برای خوانندش داشت زیاد نزدیک نکرد.خواننده با خواندن این کتاب باید دید کلی از فلسفه و آرای فلسفی کسب کند ولی این مهم به علت پراکندگی و گسیختگی مطالب به آسانی بدست نمی آید.به نظرم با یکبار خواندن نمی توان از تمام مطالب کتاب به [...]

    9. کتاب پر حجم و متنوع ای هست خواندنش حوصله میخواد بخش های ایسم ها و فلسفه وعلم بخشهای جالبی از کتاب هستند

    10. Dipped in and out as my current philosophy course requires. But I want it off my currently-reading list :)Highly recommended.
