About this item

Clear thinking and solid values -- in terms everyone can understand!

To get a hearing for Catholic truth and values today, we have to speak in sound bites: simply, clearly, and quickly . . . or people just walk away. The One-Minute Philosopher solves that problem. With plain-spoken wisdom, it explains over 175 fundamental concepts that form the basis of any decent human life.

Plus, since The One-Minute Philosopher is a basic primer that relies on common sense rather than on theology, its quick arguments are accessible to all thinking persons: you don’t have to be Catholic in order to understand the explanations in this book. That makes it a terrific tool for helping people make the distinctions that will ultimately lead them to God’s truth.

The One-Minute Philosopher is perfect for parents, teachers, and everyone who wants to restore sanity and clear thinking to our fractious society!

"In a culture and an era when people tend to equate feelings with thought, The One-Minute Philosopher comes as a welcome offering. This handy volume, which is cleverly done, can be a very useful tool to those who wish to improve their thinking and communication skills."

"Deep wisdom is not usually short, clear, and sprightly; and short, clear, sprightly books are not usually very deep or wise; but Dr. Montague Brown has written a very unusual book that is both. It puts profound, practical, universally human wisdom into a format that even a scatterbrained MTV addict can understand and profit from. It is a book that can permanently change young lives."

"Our mass-media culture leaves people confused about virtually everything that matters most. Anyone who realizes that will find Brown's One-Minute Philosopher a useful tool for clearing things up and sorting them out."

Great guide for exploring and examining oneself and many ideas
This book is based on Catholic philosophy and helps cut through the confusion of mass media, literary, and academic presentations of various concepts. I feel very grateful to Dr. Brown for writing this book, and have bought numerous copies for young relatives and friends. If you want to increase your own or your children's freedom and wisdom, I highly recommend you consider this book.

Sound Bites for Sound Thinking
Anyone who has engaged in serious conversation with the average person soon realizes just how muddled their thinking can be, in no small part because of a muddled use (a misuse) of words and the ideas or concepts behind them. It makes for one-dimensional thinking that limits one's education and frustrates real dialogue. Dr. Brown seeks to expand discussion by re-establishing the distinction between blurred concepts. But he also seeks clarity with brevity.

Excellent
Have used this book for years for ourselves as parents with our kids. "One Minute Philosopher" is great because it is short, concise and full of truth, as well as a great gift for teachers and high school graduates. Five stars are not enough...ready for a Volume II

An Analytic Proposition
Montague Brown, PhD., a professor of philosophy at St. Anselm College, wrote the book to address a generalized need in our era of shortened attention spans and anticipated immediate response. It is my opinion "The One Minute Philosopher" is a must-have reference book.
