101 Great Philosophers is a masterly exposition of the core ideas of 101 great thinkers that have shaped our world.
With the ever-increasing quantity of information, what has been lacking is an accessible summation of these without the need to wade through vast quantities of texts... until now.
Invaluable to those new to philosophy, this book will also be of interest to those that already have a grounding in the subject. The book's wide breadth ensures that intellect will be stirred, gaps in knowledge filled and connections in thought.
The ideal gift for anyone with a curious mind, this book comes highly recommended.
