Philip Stokes - Philosophy, 100 Essential Thinkers (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781841931395
Philosophy in the West has a long and venerable tradition, stretching back to almost six centuries before the birth of Christ. 100 Essential Thinkers introduces one hundred of the world's greatest philosophers and locates them within the school to which their work belongs.
Philosophy, 100 Essential Thinkers tells the story of philosophic thought, from the ancient Greeks to W.V.O. Quine, America's greatest living philosopher up until his death on Christmas Day, 2000. While covering all of the greats of philosophy (Plato, Socrates, Spinoza, Hobbes, Rousseau, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, de Beauvoir and Camus, to name just a few), this book also includes many who are not seen primarily as philosophers, such as Darwin, Freud, Adam Smith, William James, and Einstein.
Taking up the fundamental questions asked by philosophers, such as : What does it mean to live a good life? What is justice? What can we really know?
Philosophy presents the many fascinating conclusions at which thinkers such as Marcus Aurelius, Heidegger, and Sartre have arrived. Full of thought-provoking quotations, biographical detail, and clear explanations, Philosophy is food for the intellectually curious.
Refreshingly accessible, this accomplished book presents a lucid exposition of the thought of the great philosophers of the western tradition.
