Random Rationality: Outline

Lately, as more and more people find out I’m writing a book, either by me shouting from the rooftops or those closest to me telling others, they have naturally asked me what it’s about, and that is not an easy question to answer succinctly because the book is about almost everything, so I have to blabber on for minutes, boring them in the process. So this post will try to remedy that in an easier fashion that I can verbalize when put on the spot.

The book covers 5 disciplines, with 4 sub-chapters each devoted to a specific topic within that discipline. At its most basic level, the book tries to conveniently, rationally, and simply explain each topic, and instigate deeper questions, and thoughts to the reader, hopefully providing a simple blueprint of the world to counter all the noise emanating from each and every direction in this day and age.

Here is the outline of the book. I would like to know what, if any first reactions anyone has by reading the below contents. Am I biting off more than I can chew? Please let me know in the comments. I would love to hear your opinions.

  1. Looking forward to it. Especially what you have to say on “Are We Special?”,
    “The Meaning of Life”, “Is Free Will Free?”, and “Are We Responsible?” – topics very close to my philosophical interest. 🙂

      1. Sure, I’ll load ’em on my Kindle and let you know what I think. I have a few things ahead in my reading queue that I gotta get to first, but think it is important to support those rogue philosophers such as yourself who spend the time and energy writing a book, especially when such important topics are involved. 🙂

        Just shoot me a note using http://www.trickslattery.com/contact/ with your email address and I will reply back with mine.
