By Paulo Ghiraldelli Jr.

Do Pica-Pau a Quine e Davidson, passando pelos dois Sócrates, o filósofo e o jogador, o filósofo brasileiro Paulo Ghiraldelli Jr. dá ao leitor, com este livro, um modo interessante e saboroso de fazer filosofia. O discurso da filosofia, not easy e smooth, aparece aqui para deliciar o leitor com produtos culturais de toda ordem, da invenção e uso do sutiã ao quanto Machado de Assis pode nos ajudar a compreender a noção de sujeito, ou a falta dele ou sua crítica. Em todos os assuntos, Ghiraldelli traz uma ironia delicada que pica o leitor, ás vezes, exatamente no lugar que o leitor não gostaria, inicialmente, de ser picado. Mas não há ferida. Há, sim, coceira. É uma coceira cerebral. Você poderá discordar de muito do que o livro diz, mas duvidamos que não sairá dele mais perspicaz e inteligente.
