Top Customer Reviews
The book begins with a brief chapter on the "Fisrt Philosophers" and then sweeps through history with chapter after chapter, reviewing and processing the greatest philosophers up to the present time: Plato, Aristotle, Agustine, Aquinas, Kierkegaard, Marx, Sarte and many more are discussed.
The reviewer who gave this book only one star has made some unfounded attacks. The first attack, is that Dr. Sproul is not a fundamentalist Christian, but a Reformed Christian,and the differences, though similar in some respects are also in others, quite different. Sproul's review of Nietzsche is on target and the one sentence quoted by the previous reviewer, needs to be read in its entire context on "The will to Power." Old Friedrich's philosophies do allow for such uses against our fellow man, even if Nietzsche himself wouldn't have done so.
Further, this is a book about ideals and their consequences and Sproul does take a Cristian worldview position. This is no reason to disregard a book because it may afront one's personal world-view. There is much to be learned from this text.
The chapters on Aquinas and Kiekergaard are outsanding. The conclusion is the weakess point in the book and should have been better developed. It is as Sproul was tired of writing and decided to stop; This is a problem in some of his other books Like "The Last Days According to Jesus."
A highly recommemded the text. After reading this book, I would suggest one purchase the more detialed work called "Life's Ultimate Questions" by Nash.
