The key figures from all major Western philosophical traditions and periods are here. Also included are other major thinkers, such as Freud, Darwin and Einstein, Who, while not philosphers themseleves, have nevertheless had a major impact on philosophy. Togehter, these snapshots offer a full and fascinating overview of Western philosophy. Each entry locates a philosopher in their historical and intellectual context: provides a clear account of their principal writings and ideas: assesses their impact and importance; illustrates how they influenced, and were influenced by other, other philosophers; and gives suggestions for further reading. Great Thinkers A-Z is the ideal book for anyone interested in the history of Western thought and a valuable reference resource for students of philosophy and related disciplines."@en ;
