Living Biographies of Great Philosophers

Availability: Ready to download

Every biography is a story of adventure. The energetic personalities of the world represent an adventure in living. The philosophical personalities, on the other hand, represent an adventure in thinking. And when we examine the lives of the philosophers, we find that the procession of a man's thoughts can be as exciting a spectacle as the pageantry of a man's deeds.

    A quick traipse across the centuries with some serious thinkers. Outlines of the lives of men (all men) such as Aristotle, Aquinas, Spinoza, Kant, Voltaire and others are provided with the foundations and summaries of each man's philosophy appearing inter alia. Not a dumbed-down survey, though certainly not a distillation, but a decent sketch of Western thought through the ages. A quick traipse across the centuries with some serious thinkers.
