    In this landmark new study of Western thought, Anthony Gottlieb looks afresh at the writings of the great thinkers, questions much of conventional wisdom, and explains his findings with unbridled brilliance and clarity. After finishing The Dream of Reason, listeners will be graced with a fresh appreciation of the philosophical quest, its entertaining and bizarre byways, and its influence on every aspect of life.

    Amazon Customer says: "An in depth read."
    "Gottlieb's outrageously good"
    Overall

    This book provided one of the most interesting insights I've ever had in to how people originally began to inspect their lives and the world around them. It traces, literally, how people started to think. I'd never understood where logic came from. As someone else enthused, "ignore this book at your peril" or something like that. There is nothing I've heard out there, contemporary or otherwise, which comes a gnat's hair close to paralleling the degree of intellectual clarity this book describes.
