World Philosophy: An Exploration in Words and Images

World Philosophy: An Exploration in Words and Images



Consultant Editor: David Appelbaum

General Editor: Mel Thompson

Flexible in use and compelling in appearance, World Philosophy invites the reader to take a journey, through words and images, in company with the world's greatest thinkers.

Philosophy is based on words, ideas and arguments, but we also 'see' the point, gain 'insight' and 'perceive' meanings. We 'take a view' on matters, and get 'perspectives' on issues. Images can stimulate thought, can suggest the background of life and culture against which a philosopher writes, and can help us to get an intuitive grasp of issues. Hence, this book blends words and images in introducing the ideas that have shaped our world.

Whether starting with a particular thinker, a branch of philosophy, or the ideas of a particular era or culture, this book will provide the reader with a fascinating introduction to philosophy, with cross-reference boxes that lead from one thinker or idea to another.
