By the Book: Book Club May 2019 - The Pig that Wants to be Eaten

For this month’s book club, we turn armchair philosophers with BFM’s Haniff Baharudin, and delve into Julian Baggini’s The Pig that Wants to be Eaten: And Ninety-Nine Other Thought Experiments. The book poses 100 thought experiments drawn from the history of philosophy and ideas, leaving readers with many questions to mull over. We then round things off with some favourite books that question reality: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller, and The Raw Shark Texts.
