Editorial Reviews

Review

"Supplants all others, even the immensely successful History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell."
A. C. Grayling, Independent

"Gottlieb is as enjoyable as he is intellectually stimulating."
Robert Conquest, Los Angeles Times

"[Gottlieb] writes with fluency and lucidity, with a gift for making even difficult matters seem comprehensible."
Richard Jenkins, New York Times

"A delight. It is written with both wit and scholarship, providing a wonderful overall picture of Western philosophy up to the Renaissance."
Sir Roger Penrose

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy narrative and engaging
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 25, 2021
Gottlieb is one of the greatest historian of philosophy. His easy narrative style is even more beneficial for readers like me who have English as second language. If you are new to philosophy and interested in the history of philosophy and philosophers, this book is a must!
