Philosophical Tales by Martin Cohen

Book Description

Enlightening and entertaining, Philosophical Tales examines a few of the fascinating biographical details of history's greatest philosophers (alas, mostly men) and highlights their contributions to the field. By applying the true philosophical approach to philosophy itself, the text provides us with a refreshing 'alternative history' of philosophy. * Opens up new philosophical debate by applying the true philosophical approach to philosophy itself * Provides summaries of the most celebrated and philosophically interesting tales, their backgrounds, and assessments of the leading players * Explores philosophers and schools of thought in one key philosophical text to supply a solid grounding in philosophical ideas and individuals * Shakes some of the foundations of philosophy with the aim of encouraging the reinvigoration of philosophy itself
