Author(s): Anne Rooney
Beautifully illustrated in full color, this book traces the strands of thought in Western philosophy from the ancient Greeks to the present day. The main body of text runs through the key questions in philosophy explored over the past 2,500 years. Within each question, approaches are considered in chronological order, showing how each philosopher's thoughts have been influenced by those who have gone before, so that thinking has evolved or diversified over time.
