Big Thoughts Made Simple
on September 25, 2011
This book delivers even more than promised, and that says a lot. The tag line says "Big Ideas Simply Explained". The introductory essay is the best summary of philosophy that I have seen. When one considers the amount of scholarship that must have gone into each thightly written analysis, one can only be amazed. Each entry has an essay, descriptive concept map, and title that summarizes the gist of each philosopher's work. I first found the book in the library, then ordered a copy for me,and later, after showing it to my friends, ordered two more copies forf them. Good job!
