* Does anything happen for no reason at all?
* Can you donate your brain and survive?
* How long is the present?

With a light touch, Logic and Monsters distils complex philosophical thought from the ancient world to the present day into a collection of fascinating arguments on unicorns, sugar lumps, perforated socks and other puzzling objects.

Part of the Mobile Philosopher series, this little book will inspire and provoke you, luring you away from newsfeeds and notifications to enrich your mind with deep thoughts and surprising controversies. This is mezze for the soul.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lucid, accessible and engaging with just the right amount of humour... prose like this is a courtesy to the reader. -- Mike Fox, Senior Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
Will Bynoe's brilliant collection of very short philosophical essays is very readable, elegantly written and contains real wisdom. Unlike many such books, it is also funny. Bynoe effortlessly avoids the familiar traps which many such books fall into - it does not patronise the reader and it does not just summarise the ideas of others. This is a really special book - I recommend it highly. -- Tim Crane, Professor of Philosophy at Central European University
