A brief guide to ideas #dmingml


If you're looking for a little book that can fill you on in the people and ideas that have shaped commerce, humanitarian efforts, triggered wars, the ways we approach God, life, and relationship, be that Postmodernism, Platonism, Humanism, Existentialism, Feminism, Rationalism, Fundamentalism, New Age etc, then give this book a try.

I got a copy for less than £1 second hand.  I keep it to hand as a primer on so many of the above topics and ideas.  The book is billed as providing, 'essential insights into over 40 of the world's major thinkers. Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Descartes, Kant, Locke, Marx, Nietsche, Freud, Wittgenstein . . . A Brief Guide to Ideas introduces to you these and many more of the great philosophers. You'll develop a working knowledge of numerous key ideas and movements. And you'll learn how philosophers and religions through the ages have grappled with critical questions that influence your life today.'

It's a little gem of a book.  If it's out stock try Amazon used books or www.abebooks.com.  Now if only they'd make a Kindle version...
