A brilliant introduction to philosophy.,
This review is from: The Philosophy Book (Hardcover)
This is one of the most accessible and exciting introductions to philosophy that I've come across. Written in plain English by a group of UK philosophers, the chapters include 'The Ancient World', 'Renaissance and the Age of Reason', 'The Age of Revolution', 'The Modern World' & 'Contemporary Philosophy'.
'The Philosophy Book' concludes with a Directory giving brief descriptions of 59 lesser-known philosophers and a Glossary of philosophical terms.
Beautifully designed and illustrated this intellectually stimulating and comprehensive book is a superb guide for anyone wishing to discover more about philosophy.
