Description
A small marvel from renowned French philosopher and Heidegger specialist Dominique Janicaud (1937–2002), this book provides an entertaining and illuminating discourse on major Western thinkers. Despite his brevity, Janicaud covers a vast range of topics, providing discussions of the pre-Socratic thinkers before exploring Plato and Aristotle, and moving on to an elegant survey of modern philosophers like Descartes, Nietzsche, Kant, and Hegel. At the end of this poignant yet practical intellectual journey, Janicaud at last addresses the problems that have occupied thinkers through the ages—the existence of God, the meaning of life, true human nature, and the question of freedom.

"It's elegance of expression and exposition will appeal also to more mature seekers after enlightenment who are gently, subtly, led from Socrates to Nietzsche. Janicaud equips us to face down the conformist pressures of modern life."—Times (London)
