Aquellos que acuden a la filosofía para que les guíe en su proyecto vital deben ser advertidos: sin duda el saber filosófico puede iluminar y hacer que la persona mejore, pero también puede desorientar, confundir y, a la postre, aniquilar. Ya lo dijo Descartes: «Las almas más grandes son tan capaces de los peores vicios como de las mayores virtudes». Lamentablemente, la vida de la razón no necesariamente conduce a una vida razonable... Este libro analiza los peligros y desvaríos de la filosofía a través de la vida de ocho filósofos de talla gigantesca: Rousseau, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Russell, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Sartre y Foucault. Con un tono agudo y desenfadado, muestra cómo el propio comportamiento del filósofo —unas veces incorrecto, otras ciertamente lamentable, y en ocasiones absolutamente demencial—, guarda con demasiada frecuencia una estrecha relación con sus teorías.
