    Story
    (412)

    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.

    Arthur says: "Beginners start here! This is the one you want!"
    "Amazing work by Will Durant!"

    The performance was also good, well spoken and well emphasized with some dramatization added.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    In my case I love History and Philosophy, for me the hole book was a tidbit!
