Format: Hardcover
I recommend this book to anyone studying Philosophy. I majored in Phil in college and owe a great deal to "Socrates to Sartre" for helping me understand so many abstract concepts. It is writen in contemporary english so it is much easier to understand than many of the philosophers' own writing. The reader can follow the book as a historical text or use it as an encylopedia. All major theories by all major western philosophers are concisely broken down and explained. Examples are given. The book is structured in order of schools of thought and historical order. I swear one of my instructors must used this book for his lectures beacuse I used it for his classes and did very well. I don't mean to sound like I'm related to the author but this book is the best guide around.

Format: Hardcover
Socrates to Sartre is a great book to use to understand the basic thought of any philosopher. The greatest strenghts of the book lie in the analysis of philosophy up to the modern period. In particular the book seems thin on the areas of existential philosophy and post-modern thought. Those limitations acknowledged, I would recommend this book for any person trying to crack the world of philosophy. Make sure you get another book if you want to understand the thought of 19th century or 20th century philosophers.

This book is a great launching pad for the the beginning philosophy student. With this book enables a student to understand Western Philosophy as a 2500-year process, rather than a series of unrelated, bright ideas.

Format: Hardcover
Strumpf has proved himself to be a master of making somtimes dificult philosophical problems easy to understand. I found this book very helpful, it set out major points, and the basic philosophy of the most important philosophers from pre-socratic times up into the present. It is one of the few history of philosophy textbooks to include philosophers who are still living today, and most people haven't heard of (e.g. Quine). I appreciated the way in which Strumpf sets up the philosophies in referance to the past, as well as its respective present. The book was just a bit dry, but it was chock full o' info. Well worth it for anyone interested in getting into philosophy, or the college student looking for an easy to understand guide.
