Abstract
The Great Philosophers, From Thales of Miletus (ca. 620-540 b.c.), "The first natural scientist and analytical philosopher in Western intellectual history," to W.V.O. Quine (1908-2000): "Only science can tell us the truth about the world" Philosophy is a thorough and accessible introduction to the Western intellectual tradition, covering philosophical, scientific, and religious thought over a period of 2,500 years. Offering brief summaries of the work of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, as well as Copernicus, Machiavelli, Galileo, Spinoza, Voltaire, Adam Smith, Mary Wollstonecraft, Thomas Paine, Darwin, Marx, Freud, Simone de Beauvoir, Levi-Strauss, and Einstein, to name just a few, this book will serve as an invaluable guide for those seeking a clear introduction to the work of individual philosophers. A lucid and engaging book, Philosophy is sure to stimulate and absorb students and laymen alike.
