Description

A world of philosophy broken into 50 easy-to-understand, approachable moments, and organised in a chronological timeline. If philosophy is all Greek to you then look no further, this is the book for you!  This lively, accessible, and thought-provoking introduction to philosophy and its history is not your average text book, more a comprehensive guide to philosophy from around the world and through the ages. Be guided through history, learning about landmark events while tracking the historical evolution of the discipline of philosophy. Each landmark event is explored in detail with concise and straightforward explanations, using simple diagrams to demonstrate key philosophical concepts and theories. The broader historical context provides unique insights into how the concepts have developed over the centuries, making even the most advance philosophical concepts easier to understand.
