For readers of E. H. Gombrich's A Little History of the World, an equally irresistible volume that brings history's greatest philosophers to life Philosophy begins with questions about the nature of reality and how we should live. These were the concerns of Socrates, who spent his days in the ancient Athenian marketplace asking awkward questions, disconcerting the people he met by showing them how little they genuinely understood. This engaging book introduces the great thinkers in Western philosophy and explores their most compelling ideas about the world and how best to live in it. In forty brief chapters, Nigel Warburton guides us on a chronological tour of the major ideas in the history of philosophy. He provides interesting and often quirky stories of the lives and deaths of thought-provoking philosophers from Socrates, who chose to die by hemlock poisoning rather than live on without the freedom to think for himself, to Peter Singer, who asks the disquieting philosophical and ethical questions that haunt our own times. Warburton not only makes philosophy accessible, he offers inspiration to think, argue, reason, and ask in the tradition of Socrates. A Little History of Philosophy presents the grand sweep of humanity's search for philosophical understanding and invites all to join in the discussion.… (lisätietoja)

An adequate overview of about 30 philosophers. Nothing new or beyond what you would get from Wikipedia or anything else. The summaries were decent and pretty uniform in depth/style. ( )

A bit too abridged for its own good. ( )

Felsefenin Kısa Tarihi'ni okudum. Uzun zamandır felsefe üzerine yoğunlaşmak istiyordum ama felsefenin genel hatlarını bilmediğim için sürekli erteliyordum. Bu kitapla birlikte önemli felsefecilerin çoğunu ve bu felsefecilerin çalışmalarını genel hatlarıyla öğrendim. Kitaplarını okumak istediğim filozofları da belirlemiş oldum.

Felsefeye başlamak için güzel bir kitap olduğunu düşünüyorum. Kitabın adından dolayı çekinen varsa çekinmesine gerek yok kesinlikle sıkıcı bir kitap değil. Yazarın üslubu güzel ve güncel örnekler de vererek anlamamızı kolaylaştırıyor. ( )

Western Philosophy in a Glance
This is an introductory book. It gives basic informations about a wide range of philosophers in western tradition. The author presents the philosophers in a chronological order, beginning with greek’s philosophy and ending with Peter Singer. The text is clear and accessible to beginners. The chapters (the philosophers) are linked, suggesting the reader a continuity in their works. One must be conscious, though, that there aren’t such a thing. Good reading to explore philosophy. ( )

Best for: Anyone interested in an introduction to ideas from western philosophy, starting with Socrates and Plato.

In a nutshell: Philosopher (and podcaster http://www.philosophybites.com/) Nigel Warburton spends 40 chapters exploring the one or two main hallmarks of different western philosophers.

Worth quoting:
“Philosophers challenge dogma. They ask why people believe what they do, what sorts of evidence they have to support their conclusions.”

Why I chose it:
I was feeling a little nostalgic about my days studying philosophy. That program was only a year, and pretty focused on certain areas, so I only have a passing understanding of many of the big western thinkers.

Review:
I’m going to say this upfront: the western philosophy that professors often choose to teach in school is populated by dudes. White dudes. That is evident clearly in this book, which includes only four women (two of whom are in the same chapter, and one of whom shares a chapter with two dudes). In the 40 chapters there are probably between 50 and 60 philosophers discussed, so yeah. That’s not great at all.

With that said, the ideas that many of these philosophers have explored are fascinating to think through. While I’d heard of nearly all the folks discussed in the six or seven page overviews, I enjoyed getting a condensed version of their beliefs. It’s not enough to have serious, thoughtful dialog about, but it is enough to get one thinking.

I probably enjoyed the chapters that discussed figures I studied more than the other chapters, just because it got me thinking back to my time in school and how much I enjoyed those conversations and debate (and how much I think Kant is just … wrong). It got me excited to do some more philosophy reading in the near future.

If philosophy is something you think you might be interested in, I recommend this book. I think Mr. Warburton is generally pretty fair in his analyses and descriptions, so you can take what interests you and then pursue further readings in those areas. ( )
