Description

Plato * Descartes * Hume * Hegel * Marx * Sartre A Challenging New Look at the Great Thinkers Whose Ideas have Shaped our Civilization From Socrates to Sartre presents a rousing and readable introduction to the lives and times of the great philosophers. This thought-provoking book takes us from the inception of Western society in Plato's Athens to today, when the commanding power of Marxism has captured one-third of the world. T. Z. Lavine, Elton Professor of Philosophy at George Washington University, makes philosophy come alive with astonishing clarity to give us a deeper, more meaningful understanding of ourselves and our times. From Socrates to Sartre discusses Western philosophers in terms of the historical and intellectual environment that influenced them, connecting their lasting ideas to the public and private choices we face in America today.
