    "Philosophy is, if Plato (428-348 BCE) can be trusted, a frenzied passion for the truth, the love of wisdom, the pursuit of answers to fundamental questions, a way of life. The authors of the chapters in this book are all philosophers, most are college professors, and all are teachers of one sort or another. We thought we'd snag a few more students into our webs while writing about our favorite wall-crawler. Sneaky of us, isn't it?"--
