Richard David Precht What is truth? How do I know who I am? There are many books about philosophy, but since Richard David Precht's book 'Wer bin ich - und wenn ja wieviele?' ('Who Am I - And If So, How Many?') was published in 2007, a considerably wider readership has been occupied with thoughts of a philosophical nature. Hardly any writer has been able to introduce his reader to the great philosophical problems of life in such a competent and entertaining way.
Richard David Precht, born in 1964 in Solingen, works as a writer and journalist in Cologne, where he did his doctorate in 1994. His other works include 'Die Kosmonauten' (2003) and 'Lenin kam nur bis Lüdenscheid. Meine kleine deutsche Revolution' (2005).
