About the Book

250 milestones in the history of philosophy.

The literal meaning of the ancient Greek word philosophia is “love of wisdom,” so it's not surprising that the discipline of Philosophy encompasses thought about all things – including thinking itself – and epitomizes humanity's extraordinary drive to answer the fundamental questions, “What is the nature of reality?” and “How are we to live?”

Now, Easton Press presents the dazzling new illustrated reference, The Philosophy Book: 250 milestones in the history of philosophy, an exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition.

3,500 years of history's greatest thinkers and theories.

From India's ancient Sanskrit Vedas to the 21st century ethical theory of Derek Parfit, the 250 chronologically ordered entries in The Philosophy Book present an accessible, authoritative, and entertaining survey of philosophy's most important, provocative, and enduring figures, statements, concepts, and controversies.

The Tao … Confucius … The Book of Job … “Know Thyself” … Socrates … Plato … Aristotle … Logic … Stoicism … Buddhism … Christian Neoplatonism … Occam's Razor … Free Will … Descartes … The Social Contract … the Mechanistic Universe ... Karl Marx … Pragmatism … Nietzsche … Language Theory … Existentialism … Deconstruction ….

Exploring these and hundreds of other topics, The Philosophy Book illuminates how major cultures and thinkers have approached such still urgent issues as, “How can we know anything?” “What is justice?” “How do we organize society?” “Is there a God?” “Are we free?”

Featuring a stunning full-page illustration for each of the 250 entries, as well as a guide to further reading and full index, The Philosophy Book is a compendium that will enlighten and inspire readers of all backgrounds.
