Top Customer Reviews
Stephen Trombley has undertaken a mammoth task here. The concise history of modern thought from the enlightenment up till now. He has undertaken meticulous research and achieved the astonishing result of combining brevity with depth - no mean feat.
Fifty Thinkers Who Shaped The Modern World contains chapters on Kant, Hegel, Darwin, Marx, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Emerson, Kierkegaard, Weber, Satre, Wittgenstein, Gandhi, Hitler, Freud, Einstein, Derrida and many more.
Whilst we get our thinkers classified by their `genre', Trombley also makes the connections between these genres, helping the reader make useful comparisons and contradictions between the various schools of thought.
If you are after a rapid introduction to philosophical thought then Trombley's book is a must have. As life throws up ever more challenges, we need quality thinking more than ever.
Peter Cook, MD Human Dynamics and The Academy of Rock, Creativity and Innovation Author
After an illuminating introduction each chapter places the philosopher/thinker in their historical context and gives a clear summary of their ideas and writings.
The book concludes with a postscript on the current state of philosophy, a useful glossary of philosophical terms and a bibliography.
Stephen Trombley's intellectually stimulating book is an ideal guide for students of philosophy or the general reader interested in understanding modern thought from the Enlightenment to the present.
