"In this concise volume the authors summarize the ideas of the great philosophers concerning human experience and moral values. All the main problems of philosophy are discussed: epistemology and logic, ethics and philosophies of life, political and legal philosophy, the philosophy of religion, and metaphysics. A concluding section presents the views of the chief schools of philosophy. Thus the reader will readily find the basic ideas of the world's leading thinkers from the earliest times to the present about good and evil, God and the universe, truth and beauty, nature and science, human relations, mind and body, immortality, free will, and other fundamental concerns of mankind. Each of the six Parts of the book deals with one major aspect of philosophy and can be read independently. A thoughtful reading of the entire book will provide insight into the perplexing problems which have challenged the world's greatest minds and still confront us all today."--provided by publisher.

The first section of the book is good, but as the book goes on, ideas are less presented to the reader as they are thrown at him. If this book were written with consistent pacing, it would be twice as long. Citește recenzia completă
