How to Teach Philosophy to Your Dog
A scruffy Maltese named Monty enjoys sniffing at trees and barking at other dogs. But after one too many confrontations with the local Rottweiler, author Anthony McGowan decided it was time to talk to Monty about what it means to be a good or bad dog. Using Monty’s antics, McGowan takes you on a hilarious but enlightening trip through the major debates of philosophy. Will Kant convince Monty to stop stealing cheesecake? How long will Socrates keep poking holes in every argument?
