      Эта книга, собравшая более ста мысленных экспериментов, что-то вроде задачника по философии. Только стоит иметь в виду, что постановка интересных задач это уже и есть философия. Ценность задачи не сводит к решению (их в книге и нет). Книга может быть хорошим введением в филос [...]

      I've been doing research for an upcoming book, and of all the collections of philosophical thought experiments I've read, this is by far the best. It is accessible, uses text from primary sources, and is very well edited. The final entry in the book -- which I won't spoil for you -- was an instant favorite of mine.My only real problem with the book is its price (almost $40 for a paperback on ). I assume it's because this is being used as a textbook somewhere.
