A profound, sweeping survey of every arena of philosophical thought with thousands of years condensed into a digestible 7 day study book Kidding, inevitably an obliging notice for those who cannot detect sarcasm A cute book with turtle doodles, i.e a harmless diversion from my daily woes The only new thing I learned from this book is that I need to read Nozick Oh,
I studied philosophy in college, and I kinda have a very good knowledge in this field This book, however, introduced me to some new concepts and philosophy disciplines that I did not study in my classes So, in a week, this is the right book to learn about philosophy. I d give this book a meh I like that it s categorically presented instead of historically though the individual chapters are generally presented historically, which is fine , but there really isn t enough meat in each chapter to get much out of this
Pretty poor book It s impossible to cover philosophy in this tiny book so it only leaves the reader confused Using less philosophical terms could ve helped because now too much space is spent just to explain the meaning of the terms. Interesting overview of course, the time limit of one week barely gives enough time to cover the basics of philosophy Still, the author gave an interesting overview that might pique a beginning philosopher s interest Definitely a gateway book rather than an in depth resource.
