Description
"All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusions is called a philosopher," quipped Ambrose Bierce, and in this primer on great thinkers and great thoughts, classicist Lesley Levene reveals that the 2500-year pursuit of philosophy has been more about the questions than about the answers. From "The unexamined life is not worth living" (Socrates) to "There is nothing outside of text" (Jacques Derrida), Levene gives us short biographies of key philosophers; -isms and -ologies from atomism to teleology; and the quips, quotes, and conundrums that make for fascinating party talk. Perfect for the student as well as for the former student who can now better appreciate the value of the lessons, the book is presented in a printed laminated cover that fits nicely in the hand.
