Philosophy, 100 Essential Thinkers tells the story of philosophic thought, from the ancient Greeks to W.V.O. Quine, America's greatest living philosopher up until his death on Christmas Day, 2000. While covering all of the greats of philosophy (Plato, Socrates, Spinoza, Hobbes, Rousseau, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, de Beauvoir and Camus, to name just a few), this book also includes many who are not seen primarily as philosophers, such as Darwin, Freud, Adam Smith, William James, and Einstein. Taking up the fundamental questions asked by philosophers, such as-What does it mean to live a good life? What is justice? What can we really know?-Philosophy presents the many fascinating conclusions at which thinkers such as Marcus Aurelius, Heidegger, and Sartre have arrived. Full of thought-provoking quotations, biographical detail, and clear explanations, Philosophy is food for the intellectually curious. Who am I? Many of the fundamental questions of philosophy are questions that we begin to ask ourselves as young adults when we look at the world around us, at ourselves, and try to make sense of things. This engaging and accessible book invites the reader to explore the questions and arguments of philosophy through the work of one hundred of the greatest thinkers within the Western intellectual tradition. Covering philosophical, scientific, political and religious thought over a period of 2500 years, Philosophy will serve as an excellent guide for those interested in knowing about individual thinkers-such as Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau and Nietzsche, to name just a few-and the questions and observations that inspired them to write. By presenting individual thinkers, details of their lives and the concerns and circumstances that motivated them, this book makes philosophy come to life as a relevant and meaningful approach to thinking about the contemporary world. A lucid and engaging book full of thought-provoking quotations, as well as clear explanations and definitions, Philosophy is sure to encourage students and laymen alike to investigate further. Philosophy includes a 10-page glossary that defines 69 terms including aesthetics, concept, essence, materialism, natural law, theism and verifiability.… (mais)

Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers by Philip Stokes is a pocket reference of philosophers in general terms. Stokes is British-born Thai philosopher. He completed his BA in philosophy in 1993 at the University of Reading, and his MA in philosophy in 1995 at University of Bristol, both in the United Kingdom. In 2011, Stokes was teaching English language and critical thinking skills at Thai University.

This is a handy guide for those looking for a philosopher to study up on or perhaps refresh your memory. If you can't remember where Engels, Marx, and Lenin differed in ideology this book can help. Again it is all in simple terms and by no means complete. Thomas Aquinas is covered, but no mention of his Just War Theory. Each philosopher gets between one and three pages so much is left out. However, the number of philosophers covered makes up for the quantity of information. It essentially covers Thales of Miletus to Noam Chomsky. The coverage of the different schools of philosophy, overall, is well done.

Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers does a fine job of completing what it sets out to do. It is an excellent quick reference. It also provides a map to the history philosophy allowing the reader to search his or her own interest. Stokes also creates starting points for the reader to expand on with additional works. In the Kindle edition, there are also quick links in the text that allow the reader to follow concepts shared between or expanded upon by other philosophers. ( )

Book gives a snappy overview of 100 of the greatest philosphers, located within the school of thought to which their work belongs. Easy and engaging read and a handy reference book. ( )

Picked this up from a remainder bin, and it's a handy little reference book of Western thought. Illustrations and snappy one-page summaries of 100 thinkers, arranged chronologically by groups such as the Pre-socratics and the Existentialists. Good public transport or restroom reading. ( )

When Shakespeare's Hamlet utters those memorable lines, he is worrying about the spirit of his dead father haunting both the battlements of the castle and his own troubled mind.
