1 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Arlene A. Wilson on December 13, 2006
Can I give a half star?? This has to be one of the worst written and presented books on philosophy-- ever!

It tries to give a chronological ordering of various theories and philosophers-- without a strong foundational companion book, guide, CD, DVD, pamphlet, or website. Multiple reviews of the book add no further insight, and only accomplish bringing on sinus headaches, migraines and elevated blood pressure.

Of the many difficult text books I have used, I have learned that time gives one better insight and perspective on its usefulness.

It has been two years-- the book is still awful.

In fact, it is so awful that I would recommend the following:

1. Buy the book to carry to class; make sure it has a dust jacket so you can get full value when you sell it back to the store

2. Don't buy the book-- ask the book seller to reccommend another text that provides a GOOD overview of the various branches of philosophy, and they relate to each other. That way you actually learn something, because if you are depending on this book for a good grade, its not happening....
