really liked it
bookshelves: philosophy

Fantastic overview of Western Philosophy and its sociological and historical underpinnings. Well-written (despite the subject matter), including wry humor and incisive insights. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is because the writer is less dispassionate and more leading in his approach than I would have preferred (though I suppose the writing would have suffered had he truly attempted to do so). A solid 4.5 if it were available.
