Description

Review 1:
It was awesome and I got it so quickly

Review 2:
An excellent introduction to 100 philosophers since the beginning of philosophy time. The book starts at the usual place, with Thales of Miletus, and ends with Peter Singer, Mr. Animal Rights. In between there are a lot of the usual suspects covered in these introduction to philosophers books - Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Marx, , James, Sartre. There were also some unusual suspects,particularly for the Medieval period, including people like Adi Samkara, Averroe, and Kryfts (Nicholas of Cusa). It was refreshing to see these philosophers covered, especially those from the Far East (and the book includes some African philosophers as well). Limiting itself to 100 philosophers, the book neccessarily omits some significant thinkers like Schopenhauer and Lyotard, for example. Each philosopher's section includes a short bio and a brief summary of his or her major ideas. There are also short quotes on the margins. The book is nicely designed with philosopher-specific images in the background of the text, and other appropriate images or photos. Becuase of the contents of this book, I am now going to investigate further GE Anscombe, David Kellogg Lewis and Susan Haack.

Review 3:
The subtitle of this book bills itself as "the world's greatest thinkers."

Really? No mention of Schopenhauer? Habermas? Foucault (there's even a picture of him on the front cover!)? Derrida? Gadamer? Schelling? Whitehead? Instead of these, we get several completely unknown people included which seems inappropriate.

The influences on Nietzsche are listed as Machiavelli and Schopenhauer. Really? Not Wagner? Emerson? Goethe? Heine?

In point of fact, Nietzsche's entire "Gay Science" was inspired by Emerson. Wagner was the only genius that Nietzsche knew personally, and whose name features in the titles of two of Nietzsche's books, 'Nietzsche contra Wagner' and 'The Case of Wagner'. Goethe was Nietzsche's model for the ubermensch/overman. Nietzsche took the doctrine of the eternal recurrence from Heine. But I guess that they don't teach you this stuff at Oxford.

And I challenge this author to tell me what Machiavelli's influence on Nietzsche consisted of -- it's certainly never explained in the book. Certainly it is less significant that that of the authors that I mentioned.

This book is inaccurate, incomplete, and in many cases, just plain wrong.

Review 4:
now I Play a Deep thinker on TV, however in real life I gotta work at some deep thoughts beyond like Jerry Springer at the end of a show, this book is the perfect starters kit for that exactly and more. it offers a inside perspective into the inner thoughts and takes on various moods and a strong reference digest to gather strong points from and thensome. i needed a book like this to make think on a different level and another perspective and this book did the trick.

Review 5:
But where's Merleau-Ponty? Where's Saussure? Levi-Strauss? What the heck?

Someone named Lady Welby-Gregory got included though (Who..?). Every other page (paper stock) in my copy is stiff, making flipping through it an exercise in fine motor skills.
