it was amazing

An engaging read. Bakewell helps paint the picture of how the philosophers were living at the time they came up with their theories and essays and works. The how helps with the why. I wish we had gone over more of this background when I was in college. At most we had quick snapshots of what the thinkers were doing at times in their lives. Bakewell's book helps connect the dots for me. I'd recommend the book if you're in to the subject matter.
