Description
It is a story with plot twists, accidental discoveries, and disastrous love affairs, and its characters are monks, madmen, and vagabonds. A novel by Charles Dickens or Victor Hugo? No—the story of philosophy. James Garvey and Jeremy Stangroom avoid the usual textbook preoccupation with exact dates and philosophical jargon, presenting philosophy instead as an exciting quest for ideas that continues today. After a proper grounding in the ancient Greeks, the book is organized by subjects: Reason, Experience, Politics, and Idealism, with discussions along the way of the lives and thoughts of Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Hobbes, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Sartre, Foucault, and many others.
