Explore the history and concepts of philosophy, from the big thinkers to complex theories, with straightforward text and witty illustrations that demystify an often daunting subject matter. Now in pap... erback. Are the ideas of Rene Descartes, Mary Wollstonecraft, John Locke, and Thomas Hobbes still relevant today? The Philosophy Book unpacks the writings and ideas of more than 100 of history's well-known philosophers, taking you on a journey from ancient Greece to modern day. Explore feminism, rationalism, idealism, existentialism, and other influential movements in the world of philosophy. From Socrates to Confucius to Julia Kristeva, The Philosophy Book breaks down difficult concepts using innovating graphics that pop off the page alongside creative typography. Cutting through the haze of academia and untangling complicated theories to show how our social, political, and ethical ideas are formed, The Philosophy Book contextualizes the information around time periods, innovative thinkers, method, and philosophical approach. As part of DK's award-winning Big Ideas Simply Explained series, The Philosophy Book uses graphics, clear writing, a philosopher directory, and a vocabulary glossary as a perfect and comprehensive introduction to a complicated and fascinating subject.

We can discuss replacement or refund options, and will have the courier driver collect the damaged item and return it to us. Please Contact Us
