    Richard Osborne is a philosopher and writer with special interests in Art, Technology and contemporary culture. He is the author of several works including Art Theory For Beginners, Freud For Beginners, Introducing Sociology and Megawords, a cultural dictionary for the humanities. He has also written extensively on Philosophy and culture in a wide range of journals from Oslo to Osaka, including work on Art and the Mass Media. He has also written The Universe, a history of scientific thinking of ideas of the Universe, which was published in the UK and America. His two most recent books are Philosophy in Art (Zidane Press) 2006 and AES+F. Last Riot 2. A study of the work of the celebrated Russian art group who have been exhibited in many countries.

    Why does philosophy give some people a headache, others a real buzz, and yet others a feeling that it is subversive and dangerous? Why do a lot of people think philosophy is totally irrelevant? What is philosophy anyway?

    The ABCs of philosophy - easy to understand but never simplistic.

    Beginning with basic questions posed by the ancient Greeks - What is the world made of? What is a man? What is knowledge? What is good and evil? - Philosophy For Beginners traces the development of these questions as the key to understanding how Western philosophy developed over the last 2,500 years.
