Format: Paperback
Jaspers, the theologically oriented existentialist (I would say that Heidegger was theologically born and bourne/thrown, but not oriented "language is the home of Being"), was perhaps at his best as a teacher of philosophy. This volume, the first of his magnificent series on "The Great Philosophers" is loaded with really good stuff. What I like about these books is: 1) Jaspers writes about the philosophers he esteems, rather than attempting to write a comprehensive history which creates a ambience which is fun to research because he's having fun; 2) he compacts the essential utterances into a svelte, summary style with directive commentary - esp. useful for the student who is in hurry - for undergrads thru prelims.

Proof of his effectiveness as a teacher: Hannah Arendt, among the elite philosophic minds of the 20th century - his ever-grateful star student. Also good - is the volume with Kant in it - classic modernity.
