"Lavishly illustrated." — Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Major western philosophers, brilliantly explained in a few pages or less
By Piano Cat on October 28, 2018
These are the most well known western philosophers grouped in categories eg. Greeks, Christianity, rationalists, empiricists, American pragmatists and 20th century philosophers, and so on. I was glad to read a summary of Plato and Bertrand Russell's philosophy. Plenty of color photos and side notes, with notes on further reading, glossary and detailed index. Ideal for students or anyone wanting a grip on western philosophers.
