Fifty Major Philosophers: A Reference Guide

Synopsis

The history of Western philosophy spans over two thousand years, but most of the running has been made by a surprisingly small number of thinkers. It has been said that all Western philosophy is a series of footnotes to Plato, but this book takes a more accommodating view in selecting the fifty figures who have made the largest contributions to the development of our reflection upon the world and ourselves.
