Will Durant's instructive account of the lives and work of the world's great thinkers from Socrates to Santayana is endlessly inspiring. Durant, author of the bestselling eleven-volume series The Story of Civilization, wrote many other books as well that have long since become classics. The Story of Philosophy gives not only the ideas and philosophical systems of such world-famous "monarchs of the mind" as Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Spinoza, Kant, Voltaire, Locke, and others of similar stature, but their flesh-and-blood biographies. Not only the titans of older days but the most famous modern philosophers are here presented and illuminated -- including Bergson, Croce, Russell, and Dewey. The book also examines the philosophers' setting in their own time and place, and their influence on our modern intellectual heritage. These pages are packed with wisdom and winged with wit. Here, in one book for the layman, is a whole university course in philosophy, written in Durant's unique, lively, and concise style. The Story of Philosophy opens vistas of intellectual adventure and growth to those who hunger for the total perspective that is philosophy. Within its pages, Durant seeks the wisest and most indestructible answers from the world's greatest philosophers to the persistent and fundamental questions about first and last things.
