E-book Explanation:

Philosophy begins, Aristotle said, with wonder; it addresses the great questions of life. This process of self-discovery through philosophy leads one to ask questions not only about human existence but also about God. In Philosophy: The Quest for Truth and Meaning,Andrew Beards introduces readers to some key philosophical ideas 'the mind's ability to know truth and reality, metaphysics, ethics, and questioning life's ultimate purpose 'in order to guide them in philosophical reflection. By examining the development of philosophy, Beards demonstrates and makes a case for the interplay of faith and reason. Andrew Beards, PhD, is reader in philosophy and director of the distance-learning B.A. Philosophy and the Catholic Tradition program at Maryvale Institute, an international institute for philosophy and theology based in Birmingham, UK.

E-book Explanation:

Brother and sister Merrie and Joey visit the carnival at the invitation of their cousin. A trip into the House of Mirrors makes them realize things are not what they seem. Things that appear truthful are not always so, which makes these curious siblings wonder, “What is Truth?” They soon meet an unusual friend: a beautiful, wise white unicorn named Providence. Together, they journey to seek Truth. They look in many places. They search through the printed word, the media, and the opinions of their peers. The children even investigate the truth of drugs, magic, and emotions. Eventually, with Providence’s help, Merrie and Joey learn of the ongoing war between the great Truth Maker and the Truth Hater. They must choose a side in this war, and the decision they make could lead others to Truth or into darkness.
