This seems more targeted to a highschool crowd who haven't engaged with philosophy at all. It's pedagogically laid out as a journey through most common philosophical topics from how we can know anything at all to theories about life and death.

Too hard for me! I understood chunks of it, but there was plenty that whizzed past me. Great topics though. Includes the famous “What is it like to be a bat” essay. I guess I need a “Thomas Nagel for Dummies” book.

It's weird, I like his writing, and I'm very interested in the subject matter, and he doesn't use complex language... but I just don't understand what he's talking about frequently. I don't mind skimming over some stuff if I don't get it, but after about 50 pages I realized I was 'skimming' over entire chapters.

Ho “incontrato” Nagel per la prima volta nel 1987 mentre leggevo un altro libro davvero bellissimo: L’io della mente curato da Duglas R. Hofstadter e Daniel C. Dennet. I testi del libro ruotavano tutti intorno a un unico tema: la coscienza. Nagel era presente con un articolo dal titolo curioso: Cosa si prova ad essere un pipistrello?
In questa introduzione provocatoriamente brevissima alla filosofia, Nagel affronta con un linguaggio semplicissimo vari temi fondamentali, anzi, I Temi: la coscienza di se e degli altri, il pensiero, la consapevolezza, la giustizia, la morte, il senso della vita.
Non è un manuale, non ci si trovano risposte, non si trova alcun riferimento ai grandi del pensiero.
È un libro che potrebbe essere letto in tram o in aereo sollevando ogni tanto lo sguardo a riflettere su proprio se riflesso nel finestrino.
