This book invites ten philosophers to share their thoughts. What indeed are they thinking?
In this collection of conversations Daniel Nellor meets philosophers working in universities across Australia today. They discuss the nature of philosophy and why it’s valuable, and dig deep into some of the big questions on their minds. Logic, morality and the nature of time; technology, the mind, the environment and the economy: this book is a glimpse into the world of some of Australia’s leading thinkers as they wrestle with the most important questions we can ask. What Are They Thinking? is for anyone who would like to know more about philosophy from the people who practice it.
Daniel Nellor is a Melbourne writer who has worked in politics, academia and the social welfare sector. He has a PhD in philosophy and is also a playwright.
