    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.

    "Excellent and entertaining backgrounder"
    Overall

    If you want to learn about Philosophy or have had a modest introduction to one or two philosophers you are likely to appreciate this book. Its emphasis is undoubtedly on ancient greek philosophy rather than modern philosophy. However it was no small task to assemble even what was in here. The narrator is also excellent and a pleasure to listen to. The only criticism I have is that the author takes an attitude that we now know all there is to be known, and it becomes painfully obvious from listening to this book that there is a lot left to learn.
