Publisher's Synopsis

A beer-lovers' book which playfully examines a myriad of philosophical concerns related to beer consumption.

  • Effectively demonstrates how real philosophical issues exist just below the surface of our everyday activities
  • Divided into four sections: The Art of the Beer; The Ethics of Beer: Pleasures, Freedom, and Character; The Metaphysics and Epistemology of Beer; and Beer in the History of Philosophy
  • Uses the context of beer to expose George Berkeley's views on fermented beverages as a medical cure; to inspect Immanuel Kant's transcendental idealism through beer goggles, and to sort out Friedrich Nietzsche's simultaneous praise and condemnation of intoxication
  • Written for beer-lovers who want to think while they drink
