Review: Basic Teachings of the Great Philosophers

User Review  - Jessica Lowery - Goodreads

A nicely ordered overview for non-experts such as myself which simplifies and presents philosophic teachings arranged by theme. An expert may find it too basic, but it's great for a lay-person who just wants to brush up a bit or get a broad understanding. Read full review
