Summary

Our knowledge comes primarily from experience – what our senses tell us. But is experience really what it seems? 
 
The experimental breakthroughs in 17th-century science of Kepler, Galileo and Newton informed the great British empiricist tradition, which accepts a ‘common-sense’ view of the world – and yet concludes that all we can ever know are ‘ideas’.
 
Dave Robinson, with the aid of Bill Mayblin’s brilliant illustrations, outlines the arguments of Locke, Berkeley, Hume, J.S. Mill, Bertrand Russell and the last British empiricist, A.J. Ayer. They also explore criticisms of empiricism in the work of Kant, Wittgenstein, Karl Popper and others, providing a unique overview of this compelling area of philosophy.

    Cathy’s fights with food are legendary. She battles the bag of chips, the last piece of cake, the chocolate that calls her name. Now, in this delightful cookbook, the creative cartoon figure finally puts her fondness for food to work for the benefit of all womankind. It’s all about Girl Food! 
     
    Coauthored by cartoonist Cathy Guisewite and food writer Barbara Albright, Girl Food dishes up recipes in ways women really think about eating. Five categories—from Romance Food to Swimsuit Food to Consolation Food—contain taste-tempting recipes for all occasions. Whether the reader’s trying to woo or she’s ruing the day she ever met him, Girl Food serves up just the right kind of nourishment, with a dash of Cathy’s special humor.

    All of Girl Food’s eighty recipes were developed by Albright, a registered dietitian, former editor-in-chief of Chocolatier Magazine, and author of numerous bestselling books on baking. Cathy—who personally tested every recipe—appears throughout the book, giving bonafide fans a chance to cook and commiserate with one of their favorite food friends.
