The Books that Changed Philosophy: A History of How the World Thinks (Hardback)

£25.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The Books that Changed Philosophy features the most important philosophy manuscripts and books as stepping stones to take your through the history of philosophy.



By cataloguing the history of philosophy via its key works, this book reflects the physical results of human thinking and endeavour; brilliant thought manifested in titles that literally changed the course of knowledge, sometimes by increments, and sometimes with revolutionary impact.



This is a unique book of books, all as beautiful as they are important, whether they be ancient, modern or those in-between. Eye-catching antique fonts on leather covers, inked illustrations on vellum, and inspiring graphics on well-worn jackets draw the reader in.



Each book is detailed with publication date and title, the author is described, his or her key work outlined, and its context highlighted. The text brings these books as artefacts to life, telling the story of what philosophy was and is, how it appeared and when
