5.0 out of 5 stars It'll help you see the world a little more clearly, while fuzzing up other things., 17 Aug 2006
This review is from: Ideas That Changed the World (Paperback)
Though I can't improve on the previous post in terms of describing this book, i just want to put in my own opinion. I borrwed this from our local library and have not stopped borrowing it. It is a fantastic book for clearing up concepts that drive this world, if you have sat and thought what exactly makes an idealist, just how old is the idea of nationalism (younger than you think)and what is this "free market" I keep hearing about? This is a graet book for the intellectual and the amateur (if anyone can really be called that). You find that thoughts you have actually have a name and that often the concept of one idea has radically altered over the years (capitalism). It introduces you to topics and leaves you to do the further reading (while also telling you where to find the contrary opinions as well). Perfect starter to any field of thought. Though be warned you may find that what you know you, don't know so to speak. I found this true when it came to the section on Anarchism (the theory and the practice don't appear to match). Keep it as a constant companion whenever you watch the news or read someones opinions. Honestly you'd be wise to spend your money on this treasure trove of knowledge.
