Philosophers in 90 Minutes Series
Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character. . . . I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization. -BOSTON GLOBE Well-written, clear, and informed, they have a breezy wit about them. . . . I find them hard to stop reading. -NEW YORK TIMES Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise. -WALL STREET JOURNAL A godsend in this era of the short attention span.-Jim Holt, NEW YORK TIMES These brief and enlightening explorations of our greatest thinkers bring their ideas to life in entertaining and accessible fashion. Philosophical thought is deciphered and made comprehensible and interesting to almost everyone. Far from being a novelty, each book is a highly refined appraisal of the philosopher and his work, authoritative and clearly presented.
