Inspired by a commission to photograph A.J. Ayer five years ago, Steve Pyke set out to find the faces behind the philosophies of the western world's greatest thinkers. This result is this collection of photographs, as Pyke penetrates the surface of 78 great minds and avoids the stereotypical character assessment so often employed in portraiture. At Pyke's request, the philosophers have provided a short commentary on philosophy. Among the philosophers included are Noam Chomsky, Isaiah Berlin, Iris Murdoch, Karl Popper, Mary Warnock, Jacques Derrida, Ernst Tugendhat, Jean Baudrillard and E.P. Thompson.
