Book Overview

A thought-provoking introduction to philosophy; spanning the history of thought in 40 key ideas.

Philosophy is a discipline committed to helping us live wiser and less sorrowful lives. This book artfully draws together forty of the greatest and most useful ideas found in philosophy, taking us on a journey around key concepts from both Eastern and Western cultures.

We are invited to sample the distinctive wisdom of Eastern philosophy via tea drinking ceremonies, walks in bamboo forests, contemplations of rivers, and ritualized flower arranging sessions. From Western culture we seek the teachings of some of the greatest minds throughout history including Machiavellianism and Stoicism.

This essential guide to philosophy reminds us of the wit, humanity, and relevance of a number of great philosophers including Nietzsche, Heidegger, Confucius, Lao Tzu, and Buddha. Essential thoughts about love, work, anxiety, self-knowledge and happiness are examined, highlighted and inspiringly presented here so they can work their consoling effect where it is most needed: in our daily lives.
