"Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character....I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization."―Katherine A. Powers, Boston Globe. "Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them....I find them hard to stop reading."―Richard Bernstein, New York Times. "Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise."―Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal. These brief and enlightening explorations of our greatest thinkers bring their ideas to life in entertaining and accessible fashion. Philosophical thought is deciphered and made comprehensible and interesting to almost everyone. Far from being a novelty, each book is a highly refined appraisal of the philosopher and his work, authoritative and clearly presented.

About the Author:

Paul Strathern is author of the popular and critically acclaimed Philosophers in 90 Minutes series. Highlights from the series include Nietzsche in 90 Minutes, Aristotle in 90 Minutes, and Plato in 90 Minutes. Mr. Strathern has lectured in philosophy and mathematics and now lives and writes in London. A former Somerset Maugham prize winner, he is also the author of books on history and travel as well as five novels. His articles have appeared in a great many newspapers, including the Observer (London) and the Irish Times. His own degree in philosophy came from Trinity College, Dublin.

From Booklist:

Not many people have heard of the professor who planted the idea of pragmatic philosophy in Dewey's mind. Charles S. Peirce was a remarkable man who made original, often highly significant contributions to many fields, especially logic. His tutelage is most evident in what Dewey is known for: educational reform. Dewey abandoned the old unanswerable conundrums of classical philosophy, formulating the theory that what mattered was what worked for personal development, which was discovered through experimentation. This view still reigns in K-12. Gilbert Taylor
