Product description

Review

Praise for the 50s series: "A tremendous - book - Because the range and depth of the sources are so huge, the cumulative reading effect is amazing. Alternatively, it educates and edifies, affirms and inspires. Often both." Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People "A terrific compendium of the best - from famous classics to off-beat unknowns, distilled to the point of joyous clarity." Richard Koch, author of The 80/20 Principle "Butler-Bowdon has made a name for himself as an expert in personal development literature - the breadth of thought is far-reaching and inspiring"The Sunday Mail, Australia "This book explains and discusses briefly, but with remarkable lucidity, some of the ideas of fifty philosophical thinkers from ancient times to the present-day. Complex views on a whole range of important and enduring issues are made accessible to the general reader. A sympathetic account is given of each thinker and his or her thoughts, conveying the insights and capturing some of the excitement of seeing the world and human life from novel, distinctive, or unusual perspectives. The book is both enjoyable and instructive." C.L. Ten, Professor of Philosophy, National University of Singapore --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

This book explains and discusses briefly, but with remarkable lucidity, some of the ideas of fifty philosophical thinkers from ancient times to the present-day. Complex views on a whole range of important and enduring issues are made accessible to the general reader. A sympathetic account is given of each thinker and his or her thoughts, conveying the insights and capturing some of the excitement of seeing the world and human life from novel, distinctive, or unusual perspectives. The book is both enjoyable and instructive. - C.L. Ten, Professor of Philosophy, National University of Singapore

50 Philosophy Classics is an impressively wide-ranging compendium of nutshell clarity. It strikes just the right balance between contextual analysis, and breezy illustrative anecdote. - Dr Phil Oliver --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
