My American publisher will cease to operate in the present form, so I have to find another editor for my novel: A World Likely to Happen. I`ve got my copyright back.
The main goal of this work is the popularization of philosophy and history of philosophy. Its genre would be close to science fantasy. Sometimes the novel is compared with the Sophie`s World, but I think, this is an exaggeration, for the plot of my text is essentially different from that of J. Gaardner`s book.
Philip and Julia, the main characters of my novel – they are both 20-year-old – travel back in time, and discuss with chosen great philosophers: St. Augustine, R. Descartes, Adi Shankara, and with an adherent of R. Dawkins.
The work is rather short (about 49 700 words). It has been translated by Paulina Trudzik. I have closely cooperated with the translator, so I consider the text rather as the English version of my novel than just a translation.
The book was published in Polish, entitled Jeden z możliwych światów (Attyka, Warszawa 2013). It received several good, even enthusiastic reviews. I have also a nice review in one of the Polish academic journals “Analecta. Studies and Materials for the History of Science” (2014).
