    Durant lucidly describes the philosophical systems of such world-famous “monarchs of the mind” as Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Spinoza, Kant, Voltaire, and Nietzsche. Along with their ideas, he offers their flesh-and-blood biographies, placing their thoughts within their own time and place and elucidating their influence on our modern intellectual heritage. This book is packed with wisdom and wit.

    Story

    The Story of Philosophy is a great resource for someone looking for a good foundation in Western Philosophy. Although it would be nice to have had a bit more exploration of the ancient Greek and Roman Philosophers and less emphasis at the end of the book on 20th Century Europeans and Americans, this is a great book presented in an enjoyable way. The biographical information provided for each philosopher is historically interesting and creates a useful context for the philosophies developed by each of the men discussed. For anyone interested in beginning a study in philosophy, this is the place to start.
