Distilled from Donald Palmer's more than thirty years of teaching experience, this text exemplifies his very successful approach to teaching introductory philosophy. Through the use of humor and nearly 400 drawings, charts, and diagrams, serious philosophical topics come alive for the reader without compromising the importance of the subject matter. In the author's words, "This book takes philosophy seriously, but not gravely."

It seems like Plato and Aristotle said it all, and since then philosophers just alternated between the two. Not exactly, but that's about right. Plato was the more ethereal one, and Aristotle the more practical. This covers a couple dozen philosophers, from 6th c. B.C Thales (of earth, air, fire, and water, water is the most basic) of Greek Anatolia, to Wittgenstein (language allows philosophy to become absurd) and the modern day. ( )

I never realized that Philosophy was so closely related to Mathematics, at least in the early years. That makes it difficult for me to digest a lot of it. The idea of philosophy as an exercise in pure logic dulls its appeal for me. I always thought of philosophy as a more romantic endeavor. ( )

Ooit gekocht in een tweedehandswinkel - biedt een heel licht overzicht van de belangrijkste evoluties in de filosofie, en heeft al vaak dienst gedaan als geheugensteun. Wel niet aan te raden voor details. ( )

Philosophy - made lighter, made mainly comprehensible - though there remain a few figures in philosophical narrative, even made lighter, who achieve only the status of a decaf skinny latte: why bother? But Palmer overcomes the incomprehensibility of most Western philosophers (well maybe not Heidegger) and makes the journey worthwhile. In 75% of cases he even whets the appetite for more - all with humour and delightful drawings. That and a zany font. This is a wonderful book, and while some philosophy undergrads might turn up their noses at its deceptive simplicity, they should not do so: it makes philosophy an enjoyable discourse. ( )

This book appeared long before Sophie's World. I find it to be meatier than Sophie's World. It will make a perfect text book for Philosophy 101. ( )
