Philosophy in the West has a long and venerable tradition, stretching back to almost six centuries before the birth of Christ. 100 Great Philosophers Who Changed the World introduces one hundred of the world's greatest philosophers and locates them within the school to which their work belongs. Refreshingly accessible, this accomplished book presents a lucid exposition of the thought of the great philosophers of the Western tradition. As such, it is invaluable both to readers seeking a clear introduction to the work of individual philosophers and to those coming to the subject for the first time. Book jacket.
