A clear-sighted view of important philosophers,
By A Customer
This review is from: Child's Book of Philosophy (Hardcover)
Do not be put off this book by its title 'A Young Person's Guide To Philosophy', as a forty something year old I stumbled across this little gem, and was absolutely captivated. It is a beautifully produced hardback, with clear illustrations, and bold type. Dusty Greek names come alive with small phrases and incidents that are very memorable. The book leads you through the years to the contemporary philosophers. For those of us with little time, and a small knowledge of the major figures it was brilliant, a great starting point.
