really liked it

This was a great way to familiarize myself with some great philosophical minds. I love philosophy but I tend to gravitate toward the readers digest version of philosophers. Reading a philosopher's works can be incredibly rewarding but one can spend decades unraveling the thoughts and ideas of just one philosophers work. Instead, I read synopses of their work. This book covers: Thales, Protagoras, Zeno, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Lucretius, Ockham, Machiavelli, Bacon, Descartes, Hume, Reid, Rousseau, Kant, Bentham, Hegel, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Popper, Ryle, Turing, Dawkins, & Derrida. It also helps one interpret the works of the philosophers true work that you have read. It is a humorous, & light read dealing with heavy material.
