9780751392784: Story of Philosophy Poster

The unprecedented success of Jostein Gaarder's Sophie's World has fueled a worldwide explosion of interest in philosophy, yet there are few accessible introductions to this subject. Harnessing DK's unparalleled ability to make words and pictures work together, The Story of Thought simplifies a subject in which we all have interest, but which few find accessible. Bryan Magee, world-renowned philosopher and author makes The Story of Thought an easy pathway into the history of ideas and thinking. Features 30 key philosophers including Plato, Aristotle, and Nietzshe. Follows the best-selling format of the highly successful Sister Wendy's Story of Painting.

Review:

Bryan Magee has been one of the most successful English-language popularizers of philosophy in the 20th century; in this coffee-volume, he presents a brief but information-packed history of Western philosophy from pre-Socratic Greek philosophers like Thales and Heraclitus to postmodern French thinkers like Derrida and Foucault. Illustrations fill every page, offering not only portraits of the major philosophical thinkers but illustrations of some of their key concepts, while ample marginalia provide supplementary information for historical context.
