Challenging thoughts about everyday things
Philosophy with an attitude. Because the unexamined life is dangerous.

Should parents have to have licenses? Does it really make sense to fly a national flag? What does ‘Casual Day’ at the office imply? Drugs and sports, profit and loss, war, the weather report, women’s fiction, marriage…

For every belief, attitude, and behaviour Tittle investigates (in a way that only a trained philosopher can), she exposes the often unflattering implications of endorsing that belief, attitude, or behaviour (not the least of which is that there is no reasoned argument one can give in support of, no acceptable, sufficient, defensible rationale for, the belief, attitude, or behaviour in question) and, furthermore, presents a great many counterarguments to those who would nevertheless persist – leaving the reader with way more to think about than the word count would suggest.
