A general introduction, some pages devoted to several eastern religions, and overview material introducing each era, beginning with ancient Greece and ending with the 20th century, support profiles of 50 key thinkers, each one allotted a couple of abundantly illustrated pages. This introductory volume's aim is to make the often intimidating subject matter less so by including numerous photos and fine art, highlighting key ideas, and including plenty of subdivision. Appropriate for high school students and general readers. No notes or bibliography. Oliver is a lecturer in political science and philosophy at the U. Of Westminster; the book was originally published in 1997 by Hamlyn (Great Britain). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)show more
