From the Back Cover:

For many, philosophy is a difficult, almost unapproachable field-- just understanding it seems to require more knowledge than most students and general readers could possible have. That's how "Masterpieces of World Philosophy" can help you to truly grasp the ideas of Aristotle and Aquinas, Confucius and Camus: it examines and summarizes nearly one hundred influential works through critical essays that focus on their themes and major points.

Based on the award-winning, five-volume reference, "World Philosophy," each essay explains the historical background of the work, the life of its author, and its influence on modern thought. Alternative views of the philosopher's ideas are provided through reviews of important critical works, and reading lists help you find sources for additional information. With "Masterpieces of World Philosophy," the ideas that have shaped our world-- from the ancients to the thinkers of our time-- are at your fingertips.
