Not only the titans of older days but the most famous modern philosophers are here presented and illuminated -- including Bergson, Croce, Russell, and Dewey. The book also examines the philosophers' setting in their own time and place, and their influence on our modern intellectual heritage. These pages are packed with wisdom and winged with wit. Here, in one book for the layman, is a whole university course in philosophy, written in Durant's unique, lively, and concise style." -- from publisher's website
