Philosophers Who Changed History

AUTHOR: Simon Blackburn

This stunning visual celebration of the world's most celebrated thinkers tells the fascinating stories of their lives and pioneering ideas.

Lavishly illustrated with portraits of each philosopher, alongside photographs of their homes and studies, and personal artefacts, Philosophers Who Changed History offers a unique window into the personalities of each individual, and their key ideas and beliefs.

Introduced with a stunning portrait of each philosopher, biographical entries trace the friendships, loves, and rivalries that inspired and influenced them, and provide revealing insights into what drove them to come up with new ways of understanding the world. Entries explore the key ideas and working methods of each individual, and set their ideas in context, conveying a powerful sense of the place and the period of history in which they lived.
