    DescriptionThis is an innovative and accessible guide to more than 2,000 years of thought. To the complete novice learning about philosophy can be daunting - "The Philosophy Book" changes all that. With the use of powerful and easy-to-follow images, succinct quotations, and explanations that are easily understandable, this book cuts through any misunderstandings to demystify the subject. Each chapter is organised chronologically, and covers not only the big ideas, but the philosophers who first voiced them, as well as cross-referencing with earlier and later ideas and thinkers. "The Philosophy Book" untangles knotty theories and sheds light on abstract concepts, and is perfect for anyone with a general interest in how our social, political, and ethical ideas are formed, as well as students of philosophy and politics. It covers major and niche topics, from moral ethics to philosophies of religion.
