By Graham Priest

Common sense is frequently perceived as having little to do with the remainder of philosophy, or even much less to do with genuine existence. during this vigorous and obtainable advent, Graham Priest exhibits how improper this notion is. He explores the philosophical roots of the topic, explaining how smooth formal common sense offers with concerns starting from the lifestyles of God and the truth of time to paradoxes of chance and selection idea. alongside the best way, the fundamentals of formal good judgment are defined in basic, non-technical phrases, displaying that good judgment is a robust and fascinating a part of sleek philosophy.
