Description - Simply Philosophy by Brendan Wilson

Using the central idea of causality, this reference shows how the history of philosophy becomes a clear sequence of events. This perspective also reveals the deep connections between science, the mind and reality; freedom and responsibility; and knowledge, language, truth and religion. The book is suitable for use as an introduction to philosophy for beginners with a "short-chapter" format to give the reader time to pause and think at each step along the way. The many illustrations include explanatory diagrams and drawings as well as pictures of philosophers from Aristotle to Wittgenstein.
