From Aristotle to Wittgenstein, 50 PHILOSOPHY CLASSICS provides a lively entry point to the 'king of disciplines'. It seeks to enlighten and explain rather than merely instruct, helping readers comprehend some of the key questions - and possible answers - at the centre of human existence. Insightful commentaries on famous texts, biographies of each author, 'In a nutshell' summaries and representative quotes give a taste of the writings that have changed the course of intellectual history - and keep changing minds today. Philosophy can no longer be confined to academia and 50 PHILOSOPHY CLASSICS shows how powerful it can be as a tool for opening our minds and helping us think. Whether you are fascinated or daunted by the big questions of how to think, how to be, how to act and how to see this is the perfect introduction to some of humanity's greatest minds and their landmark books.
