Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character....I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one s friends to Western civilization. Katherine A. Powers, Boston Globe. Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them....I find them hard to stop reading. Richard Bernstein, New York Times. Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise. Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal. These brief and enlightening explorations of our greatest thinkers bring their ideas to life in entertaining and accessible fashion. Philosophical thought is deciphered and made comprehensive and interesting to almost everyone. Far from being a novelty, each book is a highly refined appraisal of the philosopher and his work, authoritative and clearly presented.

Synopsis:

These concise and enlightening explorations of the world's greatest thinkers bring their ideas to life in an entertaining and accessible new fashion. Each book includes a sprightly biographical essay, which includes a view of the man and a simplified (but not simplistic) explanation of his basic ideas and arguments, followed by a selection of quotations from the philosopher's works, a brief list of suggestions for further reading, and chronologies that place the philosopher within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

Synopsis:

In Aristotle in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Aristotle's life and ideas, and explains their influence on man's struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Aristotle's work; a brief list of suggested reading for those who wish to push further; and chronologies that place Aristotle within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.
