About the Author:

Roger Scruton (1944 - ). Philosopher, author, journalist, composer and editor of the Salisbury Review, considered to be one of the world's leading conservative philosophers.

Review:

'Dr Scruton writes with an unusual clarity and fluency, and is always a pleasure to read . . . this is certainly a book which you could give to anyone who was curious about philosophy and expect them to learn a lot from it.' - Alan Ryan, author of Bertrand Russell: A Political Life

'Anyone seeking a short and intelligible introduction to the ideas and intentions of Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Hegel and Marx, among others, need look no further.' - Good Book Guide
