Bernard Suits, author
The late Bernard Suits was Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Waterloo.
- "The Grasshopper" is an amazing book. Philosophically profound, yet genuinely funny. While primarily an articulation and defense of a highly plausible definition of games (and we all know what Wittgenstein said about that), it also manages to raise some of the deepest and most challenging questions about the meaning of life. All in the form of dialogues between an insect and his disciples! There is simply nothing else like it. - Shelly Kagan, Yale University Link to review
