never thought of it that way type of book For those who have read a philosophy book, you will enjoy the quirky experiments that Mr Droit comes up with, in order to demonstrate his ideas Most of them are odd, some of them are very funny They re the main reason I read the entire book In short this starts off strong Thought provoking, and quite beautifully written But soon, all the experiments which don t actually need to be performed they re thought experiments at best, and ramblings at face value blend together into one big Accept Your Own Mortality The Pointlessness Of Life mash Fine, whatever

showing I picked up this book in hopes of finding something for my ninth grade philosophy class, and while most were inappropriate for that age groupI found something for myself that hit home really hard the Feel Eternal experiment You have to feel, first as a kind of unusual dizziness, then as a truth that isandfamiliar, that the most fundamental kernel that constitutes you has nothing to do with the successive events of time You contemplate them You accompany them But you are not a part of them That at least is what you must persuade yourself 23 Not everything in the book is but that was well said And chances are that almost everyone will find something in these pages that strikes a chord So worthwhile, but repetitive One of the most unique books I ve ever read It s full of experiments that sort of challenge your view of reality Definitely walks a fine line between cool stupid, but I thoroughly enjoyed it One of the most unique books I ve ever read It s full of

because it is not really the type of book you read front to back and assimilate at once It is intended to be a book that you jump into at random for inspiration and firestarters for the imagination

reassessment of our day to day engagement with life Inshort texts, written with limpid elegance, Droit invites us to reconsider our most ordinary actions as unexpected philosophical events peeling an apple, trying to lie in a hammock, watching someone sleep, hearing your voice on an answering machine, playing with a small child activities that, when considered outside of their routine, invite us to experience the familiar in startling new waysDroit encourages us to go further pretend to be an animal of your choice, create a wall with your hands, try to walk around your room in total darkness, spend time in the Underground and observe your oddity strange things become thoughtful insights Thought experiments you can do in from 10 minutes to several decades Some are trite try not to think , some are potentially illegal and obviously dated observe a woman through her window , some are amusing drink while urinating , and some are exciting become music but all are described in a page or two and can keep a group of one to several people thoughtfully occupied and chatting for a while Reminded me of A Book of Surrealist Games.
