A History of Western Thought

  • By Stephen Trombley
$14.49
($16.95)

A masterly distillation of two-and-a-half millennia of intellectual history, and a readable and entertaining crash course in Western philosophy

Short, sharp, and entertaining, this survey covers the development of all aspects of the
Western philosophical tradition from the ancient Greeks to the present day. No major representative of any significant strand of Western thought escapes the author's attention: the Christian Scholastic theologians of the Middle Ages, the great philosophers of the Enlightenment, the German idealists from Kant to Hegel; the utilitarians Bentham and Mill; the transcendentalists Emerson and Thoreau; Kierkegaard and the existentialists; the analytic philosophers Russell, Moore, Whitehead, and Wittgenstein; and--last but not least--the four shapers-in-chief of our modern world: Karl Marx, Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, and Albert Einstein.
