The story of philosophy, part II by Will Durant( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
""Ugly, flippant, obscene, unscruptulous, even at times dishonest-- Voltaire was a man with the faults of his time and place, missing hardly one." Despite his lavish pursuit of the baser human instincts, Voltaire is most remembered for the inexhaustible fertility and brilliance of his mind. In fact he was not merely contemporary with the Age of Enlightenment, he was its soul and essence. Inspired by the wit and accomplishment of this extraordinary man of thought, Durant continues his tour of philosophy's greatest minds, including: Kant, Schopenhauer, Spencer, Nietzsche and the more contemporary European and American philosophers like William James and John Dewey. Salted with a dash of humor and a great deal of reverence, Durant brings samples of the works of these great thinkers to the common man-- filling in gaps that exist in most modern readers' education. A compilation of eleven years of research, The Story is considered a contemporary classic and has been translated into eight languages. Part 2 begins with Voltaire and the French Enlightenment"--Container
