Description
Have breakfast with Socrates, go to work with Nietzsche, head to the gym with Foucault, then have sex with Ovid—or if you'd rather, Simone de Beauvoir. The former Oxford philosophy fellow who also gave us Driving with Plato whisks readers through an ordinary day with history's most extraordinary thinkers, waggishly explaining what they might have to say about commuting, shopping, eating, going to a party, and falling asleep, while connecting our most mundane habits to the wider world of ideas.

"I am often asked to recommend a good introduction to philosophy—now I've discovered one. There are plenty of books but mostly they're either the 'wrong kind' of philosophy or they are terribly written. [Robert Rowland] Smith's work is witty, inventive and intelligent—Carl Schmitt on arguing with your partner, Jacques Derrida on booking a holiday—and brilliantly shows how grounded High Theory really is."—Times Literary Supplement
