This introduction to the major philosophers and schools is philosopher based rather than topic based. The book discusses figures from the pre-Socratics to the 20th century and includes an up-to-date bibliography to advise readers on what to expect from the available literature.

John Shand is an associate lecturer in philosophy at The Open University.Review:
"The book is clear, astute, and rightly self-confident. It surveys all of the central and fundamental history of philosophy, but comes close enough to the great arguments and doctrines to introduce them effectively to a questioning reader. Plato, Hume, Wittgenstein, and the other makers of philosophy appear as they were, not as types of thinkers, but individual thinkers. What they believed and why is brought firmly into view." Ted Honderich, Grote Professor of the Philosophy of Mind and Logic, University College London.
