Book News
Thoughtfully balanced and living up to the publisher's reputation for attractive presentation, this reference traces 2,500 years of Western philosophy from the ancient Greeks to modern thinkers. It makes themes and important figures accessible to general readers, with enough substance for more experienced students. Text is interspersed with abundant, well-chosen art reproductions illustrating concepts and themes, as well as photos, sidebars, and quotes that help set the context. Suggesting that readers next tackle the great philosophers themselves, the guide to further reading identifies particular works and editions and also lists some convenient and accessible introductions and overviews.

"Kant believed that anything which cannot be apprehended by our bodily apparatus can never be experience for us." "A courageous crusader against tyranny, bigotry, and cruelty, Voltaire is still recognized as one of the greatest French authors, and the embodiment of 18th century enlightenment." "Burke: 'great art strives after the infinite, and the infinite, having no bounds, can never be clear or distinct.'"
