`The Philosophy Book' does one thing well... it explains the history of's thinking. It is a clearly explained textbook on ideas. It has a well written introduction that gives details how man has tried to clarify life and the world around him. It covers morality, politics, religion, and science. This is done by arranging the philosophers in chronological order from 700 BCE and Thales of Miletus to the present and Slavoj Zizek.
The Dharma wheel is explained and it does one of the better jobs in explaining Nietzsche. There is a directory with the names of the thinkers and comparable men in the same school of thought. A really useful glossary is included, as well as an index.
Sometimes philosophy is esoteric, but this book succeeds in explaining it with time lines, diagrams, and pictures of the philosophers and of course their philosophy, thoughts and ideas. This is really the history of philosophy; trying to deduce the why and wherefore of the world, of life and existence. This would serve well those who wish to learn about philosophy and its history. It would make a good supplement to any course or work where someone is trying to learn about this subject.

To the complete novice, learning about philosophy can be a cause for dread. The Philosophy Book uses innovative graphics and creative typography to help demystify hard-to-grasp concepts for those new to philosophy, cutting through the haze of misunderstanding, untangling knotty theories, and shedding light on abstract concepts. Aimed at anyone with a general interest in how our social, political, and ethical ideas are formed, as well as students of philosophy and politics, The Philosophy Book breathes new life to a subject that is often regarded as esoteric and academic.
