The Love of Wisdom “immensely worthwhile”

15Jun09

Cowan and Spiegel are charitable as they consider views they don’t hold, while also providing reasons why they believe those views are wrong when the views go against the clear teachings of Scripture. They illustrate the difficult topics with countless examples that are clear and instructive. The one shortcoming of the book is that some of the “Questions for Reflection” should have an answer key- particularly those in the logic section that ask the reader to identify soundness and validity of arguments or fallacies. Perhaps more questions with objective answers and a key in the back of the book would be helpful for readers who aren’t reading or discussing the book with a group of people. This is hardly a criticism of the book’s content, however, since regardless of one’s use of the questions, reading The Love of Wisdom is immensely worthwhile even for those who have a passing interest in philosophy.
