This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sep 28, Matthew rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Lawhead’s History of Philosophy I and Philosophy of Language courses, so take my advise for what it’s worth. Still, I have read this book twice after graduation and used it as as reference on a number of occasions. The book does a good job of explaining the major philosophers in the Western tradition, their philosophies, and how their ideas related to one another. It makes good use of straightforward language, effective analogies, relevant art, and useful diagrams tog Full disclosure: It makes good use of straightforward language, effective analogies, relevant art, and useful diagrams together to make ideas clear without dumbing them down.
At a hefty pages, it’s compendious enough to have some real scope it was designed to cover two courses yet shorter than some of the multi-volume works that have frightened away all but the most stalwart of readers see Copleston’s A History of Philosophy. All in all, Voyage of Discovery does just what it set out to do: I highly recommend it to new students of philosophy or even those who’d just like to know what philosophy is all about but lack the time to take an entire course.
