E-BOOK EXCERPT

A companion volume to The Story of Mathematics, The Story of Medicine and The Story of Physics, this book traces the strands of thought in western philosophy from the Ancient Greeks to the present day. Approaches to key questions are considered in chronological order, showing how each philosopher's thoughts have been influenced by those who have gone before, and have evolved or diversified over time. The Story of Philosophy includes easily absorbed explorations of all five branches of philosophy (metaphysics, epistemology, logic, ethics and aesthetics). The accessible format features full-colour illustrations and panels giving biographies of important figures, accounts of important texts, and definitions of key philosophical concepts.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The Story of Philosophy sees philosophy for what it is: a passionate, exhilarating quest for human understanding that cannot be reduced to dry categories or simple definitions. Accessible writing, brilliant scholarship and over 150 colour illustrations combine to form a richly informative and highly entertaining work of narrative history. Packed with intriguing anecdotes and fascinating detail, James Garvey and Jeremy Stangroom bring us face to face with the most important philosophers in western history. The story begins with the Ancient Greeks, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, great thinkers who set the philosophical agenda to this day. It continues with Greek and Roman philosophers--slaves and emperors who found consolation in deep thoughts about life and death--and moves on to the religious thinkers of the Middle Ages. The origins of modern science, politics, and morality are examined, alongside theories of knowledge, logic, mind and matter. Along the way, you'll discover Descartes' evil demon, Locke on the limits of knowledge, Rousseau and Hobbes on human nature, Hume's scepticism, Kant on duty, Nietzsche's Superman, Marx on class struggle, Russell's logic, Wittgenstein on meaning, Sartre on bad faith, Foucault's take on power, and much more. Rigorous, refreshingly free of academic jargon, and highly accessible, this is the ideal introduction for anyone who wants to gain a new perspective on philosophy's deepest mysteries and most intriguing discoveries.
