Every biography is a story of adventure. The energetic personalities of the world represent an adventure in living. The philosophical personalities, on the other hand, represent an adventure in thinking. And when we examine the lives of the philosophers we find that the procession of a man's thoughts can be exciting a spectacle as the pageantry of a man's deeds. The great thinkers introduced in this work include: Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Epicurus, Marcus Aurelius, Aquinas, Francis Bacon, Descartes, Spinoza, Locke, Hume, Voltaire, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Emerson, Spencer, Nietzsche, William James, Bergson, and Santayana.… (more)

This was my favorite of the series Living Biographies and was a very good way to bootstrap my way as a young teenager into the great conversation that it philosophy. ( )

The book accomplishes what it set out to do, e.g., present an overview of the lives and thinking of many of the worlds great philosophers. Discussed in the book are Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Epicurus, Marcus Aurelius, Thomas Aquinas, Francis Bacon, Descartes, Spinoza, Locke, Hume, Voltaire, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Emerson, Spencer, Nietzsche, William James, Henri-Louis Bergson, and Santayana. Not so in-depth as to bore the reader with excess details, yet not so superficial as to leave the reader uninformed. ( )
