Philosophers' Dogs

Philosophers' Dogs

By Dodson Samuel



What does it mean to be a good dog? Are tennis balls always real? Is a bark ever truly worse than a bite? All these questions and more are answered in Philosophers' Dogs, the groundbreaking treat-ise that has been dog years in the making. The book reveals a long-kept secret: that every human philosopher has stolen their best ideas from their canine companions, shamelessly disguising the dogs' original thoughts as their own. Featuring beautiful illustrations alongside meticulously researched historical fact,* Philosophers' Dogs follows the trials, tribulations and tail-wagging of the pooches owned by famous philosophers and essayists. It is a vital addition to the bookshelves of philosophy students and dog lovers alike, packed with insights hitherto (wrongly) attributed to everyone from Confucius to Simone de Beauvoir via Socrates, Karl Marx and Mary Wollstonecraft. *Not necessarily historical or factual.
