What's the best way to answer some of the biggest questions in life?

Questions like: Does God exist? What is the meaning of life? Is there a basic principle for all moral decisions? What's the best way to organise society? How do we know what is true? Are there limits to what we can know? Why do things exist? Is there life after death? Is there a design to the Universe? What is a self? What is beauty? What is humankind's place in the cosmos?

New York Times bestselling authors Daniel Klein and Thomas Cathcart have the answer. I Think, Therefore I Draw is an hilarious new exploration of philosophy through cartoons - a thorough introduction to all the major debates in philosophy. Packed with humour and loaded with profound philosophical insight, this will delight and enlighten readers.

Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein have known each other since they were philosophy students at Harvard. They have written several bestsellers together, including Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar and Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington. Tom is the author of The Trolley Problem, or Would You Throw the Fat Guy Off the Bridge? Danny's other books include Travels with Epicurus and Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life They Change It.

`You don't have to be old to be won over by the charms of this intelligent, playful and moving book.' * Saturday Age on Travels with Epicurus * `A book with a lightness of touch that is also deeply serious and satisfying philosophically.' * Weekend Australian on Travels with Epicurus * `A breathtaking, entertaining and thoroughly digestible guide to some of the best thoughts ever thunk.' * Weekly Review on Everytime I Find The Meaning of Life, They Change It * `One is left marvelling at the depths the authors find in seemingly whimsical or simple sketches...A guide for those who like to smile wryly as they gently exercise their brains.' * Age *
