    A very good read but can sometimes be a bit inaccessible to people who are not used to some of the extensive vocabulary used. Overall a good read.

    a good book that a gives a basic understanding of philospher's and philosophy of various sorts in a couple of weeks to those with an interest in philosophy; it also is a book where the main philosphies of the main philospher's is outlined and explained in interesting contexts. lots of these examples can be compared in todays society.

    This book has a lot of really good information. I read it because I was interested in how all of the different political systems we currently have were put into place, and what sort of people were associated with those different identities. I would reccomend it if you want to know. Don't read it just because you're bored, it is quite a bit to digest.

    A useful introduction which I shall keep on my shelves for reference, but I found its structure too thin -- not enough meat on the bones, and no real feeling of how this all connects to the world around us now...
