Praise for the previous edition:


"The 22 chapters of this history are lucidly written andwith enough humour in them to cheer up the educated general readereven in the midst of the most arid of philosophicaldiscussions." Times Higher Education Supplement


"This is simply a jolly good read, with pithy historical andbiographical scene-setters, authoritative accounts of howsuccessive philosophers have contributed to the development ofWestern thought, and often brilliant single-sentence summaries."Church Times


"A richly detailed, critical look at philosophy, displaying bothKenny's love for philosophical engagement and for goodhistory...Kenny's style is unpretentious, effective, and at timeswonderfully informal and amiable." Review of Metaphysics

From the Back Cover:

This illustrated edition of Sir Anthony Kenny's acclaimed survey of Western philosophy offers the most concise and compelling story of the complete development of philosophy available.

Spanning 2,500 years of thought, An Illustrated Brief History of Western Philosophy provides essential coverage of the most influential philosophers of the Western world, among them Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Jesus, Augustine, Aquinas, Machiavelli, Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Berkeley, Hume, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Mill, Nietzsche, Darwin, Freud, Frege, Russell, and Wittgenstein.

Replete with over 60 illustrations - ranging from Dufresnoy's The Death of Socrates, through to the title page of Thomas More's Utopia, portraits of Hobbes and Rousseau, photographs of Charles Darwin and Bertrand Russell, Freud's own sketch of the Ego and the Id, and Wittgenstein's Austrian military identity card - this lucid and masterful work is ideal for anyone with an interest in Western thought.
