Wittgenstein's poker : the story of a ten-minute argument between two great philosophers by David Edmonds( Book )

63 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On October 25, 1946, in Cambridge, England, the great twentieth-century philosophers Ludwig Wittgenstein and Karl Popper came face to face for the first and only time. The meeting--which lasted ten minutes--did not go well. Their loud and aggressive confrontation became the stuff of instant legend, but precisely what happened during that brief confrontation remained for decades the subject of intense disagreement. An engaging mix of philosophy, history, biography, and literary detection, Wittgenstein's Poker explores, through the Popper/Wittgenstein confrontation, the history of philosophy in the twentieth century."--P. [4] of cover

Rousseau's dog : two great thinkers at war in the Age of Enlightenment by David Edmonds( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1766 Jean-Jacques Rousseau--philosopher, novelist, composer, educational and political provocateur--was on the run from intolerance, persecution, and enemies who decried him as a danger to society. David Hume, the foremost philosopher in the English language, was universally lauded as a paragon of decency. Putting himself under Hume's protection, Rousseau, with his beloved dog, Sultan, took refuge in England. Yet within months, the exile had accused Hume of plotting to dishonor him. The violence of Hume's response was totally out of character; the resulting furor involved leading figures in British and French society, and became the talk of intellectual Europe. Here, journalists Edmonds and Eidinow probe the bitter and very public quarrel that turned the most influential thinkers of the Age of Enlightenment into the deadliest of foes. The result is a story of celebrity and its price, of shameless spin, of destroyed reputations and shattered friendships.--From publisher description

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For two months in 1972, the world watched, spellbound, as Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky dueled for supremacy in chess. The match was as much about chess as it was a contest between the dysfunctional, manipulative Fischer and tournament officials; between the free-spirited Spassky who distrusted the Soviet system and the entrenched Soviet bureaucracy that grudgingly supported him; and between the ideologies of communism and free enterprise
