Martin Cohen is Research Fellow in Philosophy of Education at the University College of St. Mark and St. John, UK. He is also the editor of The Philosopher.Review:
'Are all moral claims synthetic? Or analytic? Or a priori? Or a posteriori? Or both? Or neither? What about tables? Can you see one? Ask yourself: does it exist? Too easy? Go out of the room and ask yourself again. The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Obey the brain warning at the beginning and don't read all 101 problems at once. On free will: You don't always act yourself if you're suffering from a paranoid personality disorder.' - The Guardian
