Teaser Tuesday: The Pig that Wants to be Eaten

Like a spinning top, the Wheel of Time has come ’round to Teaser Tuesday.

Just in case you don’t know, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is grab the book you’re currently reading, open to a random page and share a few sentences from that page. But make sure you don’t share any spoilers!*

*I wish I could take credit for this introduction, but I shamelessly stole it from Heather over at bitsnbooks. To help me make amends, you should go check out her blog.

This week I’m reading The Pig that Wants to be Eaten: 100 Experiments for the Armchair Philosopher by Julian Baggini.

The Goodreads Blurb:

Both entertaining and startling, The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten offers one hundred philosophical puzzles that stimulate thought on a host of moral, social, and personal dilemmas. Taking examples from sources as diverse as Plato and Steven Spielberg, author Julian Baggini presents abstract philosophical issues in concrete terms, suggesting possible solutions while encouraging readers to draw their own conclusions: Lively, clever, and thought-provoking, The Pig That Wants to Be Eaten is a portable feast for the mind that is sure to satisfy any intellectual appetite.

The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 198:

The war will only be won when every work of art is judged on its own merits, not the basis of the signature in the corner. That is, unless anyone can provide good reasons for believing that the signature really does matter . . .

    1. I am enjoying it. In fact, I finished it an I’m writing a review today. It’ll be on Goodreads today or tomorrow and I’ll also post it with next week’s teaser. (I didn’t finish it in one day; I often write my posts in advance)
