Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

As a bright adolescent, Magee discovered--see his Confessions of a philosopher --that the kind of thinking he liked to do was called "philosophy". The great disappointment of his life was the realisation that, incapable of great original thoughts, he was condemned to be a populariser all his life. His loss is our gain, and this admirable illustrated book is his very partial account of philosophy for other adolescents and adults who need a handy crib. This is Whiggish history, in which everything leads to a selective group of 20th-century Greats--Wittgenstein, Russell and Popper--two of whom were Magee's personal friends; contemporary French thinkers like Foucault and Derrida are relegated to the sidelines and linguistic analysis treated as a slightly irrelevant game. It is also Eurocentric history in which we leap from Stoics and Epicureans to Thomas Aquinas taking in only Saint Augustine on the way--Muslim thinkers are no more than mentioned and the Buddha is only here as an influence on Schopenhauer. Illustrations and sidebars give a useful cultural context; Magee writes well about his intellectual heroes and this is a personal enough book to be both more and less than a mere introduction. --Roz Kaveney -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book provides an excellent introduction to philosophy. There are also many beautiful photographs, which add to the quality and general appearance of the book. Bryan Magee captures the essence of the thought of literally dozens of philosophers who lived over a span of more than 2,000 years. He is able to translate complex ideas into a format that is interesting to the nonprofessional. If one could read just one book on western philosophy, this one would be a good choice. As someone who has studied philosophy at both the undergraduate and doctoral levels, I can say that this is one of the best books I have read on the subject. Magee's writing style is to be commended. He makes reading a pleasure. I have added most of his other books to my list of books to read.

The teacher in me, and the student in me, LOVES this book. I like the way it's organized, the pictures, the perspective. It's a beginner's look at the subject without being simplistic or patronizing. Easy to read - straight through or in parts. I wish I could buy this book for my own reference library, but it's not available!!!???

This is quite simply the easiest and best one volume introduction to philosophy there is. All the major philosophers are covered in concise and beautifully illustrated essays. It is a shame that it is out of print, but one can still obtain it through the Quality Paperback Book Club.
