Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought every copy of this book that I could find, to give to my graduating seniors. I have had two copies in my classroom for years, because the book is so useful. The layout is the key. Each area of interest--Communism, Liberty, Justice, etc.--is set up so that quotations related to it are in chronological order. Thus, the reader can see not only what was said and by whom, but also changes over time. Pro and con statements are presented, as well as those that define the term under discussion. In one class, we simply started with a quotation on strength and justice, from Pascal, and moved from the terms and ideas students used in their analysis of it, back to the book to search out the quotations that also used those terms. Great thinkers such as Montaigne and Voltaire entered the discussion, almost as if they were in the room! The power of ideas, both from the students and these older voices, raised the analytical thinking to new heights.
