Philosophy, 100 Essential Thinkers tells the story of philosophic thought, from the ancient Greeks to W.V.O. Quine, America's greatest living philosopher up until his death on Christmas Day, 2000. While covering all of the greats of philosophy (Plato, Socrates, Spinoza, Hobbes, Rousseau, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, de Beauvoir and Camus, to name just a few), this book also includes many who are not seen primarily as philosophers, such as Darwin, Freud, Adam Smith, William James, and Einstein. Taking up the fundamental questions asked by philosophers, such as-What does it mean to live a good life? What is justice? What can we really know?-Philosophy presents the many fascinating conclusions at which thinkers such as Marcus Aurelius, Heidegger, and Sartre have arrived. Full of thought-provoking quotations, biographical detail, and clear explanations, Philosophy is food for the intellectually curious

So many frustrating mistakes like miscalculations and typos. It is frustrating when you are seriously trying to brush up and review for physics for something important and throughout the book are miscalculations. How can one honestly take the authors seriously when careless mistakes are rampant throughout the book.
