--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

[The Big Ideas Simply Explained books] are beautifully illustrated with shadow-like cartoons that break down even the most difficult concepts so they are easier to grasp. These step-by-step diagrams are an incredibly clever learning device to include, especially for visual learners. - Examiner.com

This graphically lively presentation, which also features color reproductions, colorfully framed pull quotes, photos, and a variety of fonts, offers students an overview of the ideas and concepts generated by people who have spent their lives wondering about the world. - School Library Journal

In The Philosophy Book, the ideas and thoughts of more than one hundred of the most influential philosophers from the ancient world through today are presented in a succinct, yet highly readable, format. From all corners of the world and from different traditions and approaches to philosophy and the art of reasoning, the contributors to this excellent book highlight the impact of each philosopher on his society and how it affected the development of subsequent ideas. Students of philosophy or those interested in human thought will thoroughly enjoy this book. This volume is an excellent addition to a general philosophy collection. - Voice of Youth Advocate/VOYA Magazine

1.0 out of 5 stars Printing issue!!
By BJ on 17 December 2019
Book arrived in good condition and in fairness the content is very interesting. However, someone has dropped a massive bollock. As you can see, the book cover is in German but the contents in English. Can’t really give this as a gift now
