    1. کتاب "پرسش های زندگی" از ده فصل تشکیل شده که هر فصل با سوالهایی در مورد مسائل مهم فلسفی به زبانی کاملا گویا آغاز شده است. در این کتاب خبری از اصطلاحات و ادبیات سخت فهم فلسفه نیست، بلکه به موضوعات کاربردی و طرح سوالاتی می پردازد که در طی قرن ها متفکران به آن پاسخ های متفاوتی داده ا [...]


    2. کانت: فقط می توان فلسفه ورزیدن را تدریس کرد نه فلسفه راءخردورزی به تمامی و از بنیاد نوعی «گفت و گو» است.ءسنت آگوستین: کاملا درست نیست که بگوییم سه زمان گذشته، حال و آینده وجود دارد. شاید درست تر آن باشد که بگوییم سه زمان وجود دارد: زمان حال چیزهای گذشته، زمان حال چیزهای کنونی و ز [...]


    3. سوتر سیر پرسش‌هایش را از مرگ آغاز می‌کند، از خرد و فردیت عبور می‌کند و با آزادی، طبیعت، جامعه و زیبایی، به معنا می‌رسد. او از دیدگاه فلاسفه‌ی پیشین برای بررسی هر سوال خود استفاده می‌کند و گرچه در توضیح برخی مسائل مانند آزادی انسجام کافی را ندارد، اما به طور کلی قادر است مخا [...]


    4. Si aun no lo has leído, prepárate una taza de una babosa caliente, acomodate en el sillón y disfruta de un excelente ejercicio de reflexión!


    5. Excelente libro como ejercicio para cuestionar los aspectos fundamentales de la vida. El problema es que no propone mucho, y las respuestas quedan en el aire


    6. This book, by one of Spain's most eminent philosophers, provides a lively and very accessible introduction to philosophy. Written for those who have no prior knowledge of the field, it reveals how the central problems of philosophy remain highly relevant to everyday contemporary life. Savater addresses the questions that we ourselves must face: what is this ‘I' that I take for granted? What does it mean for me to be in the world? In what sense am I free? And how does the idea of death affect m [...]


    7. "Ojalá el lector pueda sentir a ratos el mismo gozo con que fueron escritas muchas de estas páginas" y tanto que sí.



    8. Questo libro dovrebbe essere utilizzato in ogni liceo come testo di riferimento per Filosofia.Geniale e fruibile, una maginifca introduzione alla scienza prima.


    9. Llevaba demasiado tiempo queriendo leer este libro. Algo así como desde hace dos años. La primera vez que lo intente leer estaba casi finalizando la secundaria (bachillerato), pero me di cuenta de que 1) no tenia el tiempo suficiente para dedicarme a el; 2) no estaba preparada para enfrentármele. La verdad, es que entre tantas cosas que tenia que hacer, no me daba el tiempo, y este tipo de libros son de los que tiene que ponerle el 100% de tu atención. Una completa dedicación hacia este, da [...]



    10. Mediante un vocabulario accesible y un estilo muy ameno, Savater nos guía por las preguntas básicas de que se ha ocupado la filosofía. Aunque está pensando para ser leído antes de estudiar Filosofía en Bachillerato, yo lo leí después, y puedo decir que también es recomendable entonces. Si este libro te lleva a hacerte preguntas y Bachillerato te enseña las respuestas esbozadas por algunos de los grandes filósofos de la historia; para mí estuvo bien primero aprender cuáles eran las f [...]


    11. Uma óptima introdução ao pensamento filosófico e aos principais temas desenrolados pela prática filosófica. Com um sentido prático, o autor consegue com uma linguagem acessível a qualquer um explicar, ainda que a um nível mais leve, as reflexões mais importantes, sem incorrer a uma complexidade tipicamente filosófica.


    12. Tuve que leer varios ensayos, incluyendo capítulos como "Perdidos en el tiempo" y "La muerte" para un trabajo académico y tiene un concepto y referencias muy interesantes sobre la vida, lo que mas me llamo la atención fueron autoridades de la literatura y la filosofía utilizadas para reafirmar los argumentos, se observan cantidades de citas de Borges, San augustin, Aristoteles,entre otros.


    13. Per chi ha ancora le idee poco chiaree meno male! E soprattutto per chi continua a farsi delle domande! Perché il caro Oscar Wilde docet: " Chi ha già trovato le risposte a tutte le sue domande vuol dire che si è posto le domande sbagliate" ;)


    14. این کتاب بهانه ی بسیار خوبی است برایپرسیدن سوال های بیشتر .قسمتی از کتاب :من ممکن است بخواهم که انچه را نمی خواهم بخواهم بخواهم.یا بخواهم که انچه را می خواهم بخواهم بخواهم.یا بخواهم آنچه را می خواهم یا در واقع نمی خواهم بخواهم بخواهم. (صفحه ی


    15. Buen libro, sin embargo, después de leer Ética para Amador, este me resulto algo pesado. Es recomendado para adultos que se interesan por la filosofía pero sin llegar a un nivel profundo.


    16. En lo personal no es mi tipo de libro, prefiero otro tipo de lectura, pero aún así no me gustó del todo la manera en la que aborda los temas.



    17. Filosofía para dumies. Libro obligado en la niñez para formular y refutar hipótesis de lo que hasta ese momento se conoce como normal en el arte cotidiano de vivir.


    18. 'tis a book talking of philosophy,but not historically,'tis handyA fantastic book (Iran,2-3 mah pish toghif shod!!!)



    19. It starts out great and beautifully but the it kind of disintegrates. The author means well, but without a solid foundation of philosophy, it kind of breaks down in later chapters.
