This review is from: Philosophy for Life: And other dangerous situations (Paperback)
Having never delved into Philosophy, I found this to be an illuminating and lucid introduction into the many schools of thought founded by the ancients. Evans highlights the most influential figures from the various different movements such as the Stoics, Sceptics and Mystics. He ingrains their relevance in modern society through entertaining and accessible anecdotes. The contents are laid out as if following a day of education and this frame emphasises how in order to reap the benefits from the lessons in this book you must revisit and revise the teachings. Evans also generously provides a myriad of further reading at the end of the book, stemming from the knowledge he clarifies in his agreeable and knowledgeable voice. If you are curious about Philosophy and need a primer to set you up for further reading, you will find an abundance of wisdom in this book.
