Philosophy is a somewhat mysterious subject to the general student and reader. What is it about? Why should people devote themselves to a subject seemingly so remote and so fruitless? What is the relation, if any, between the study of philosophy and that practical consolation which is popularly associated with the subject? The present volume is designed to answer these and like questions in terms which are intelligible to the uninitiated.
