Etat du livre : Very Good
A historical survey of Western philosophy in its social and political setting. Editor, Paul Foulkes. Designer, Edward Wright. With ten compositions by John Piper. 319 pages, well illustrated (some in color), cloth, very good. 8 by 11-1/2 inches. From the foreword: What is here attempted is a conspectus of Western Philosophy from Thales to Wittgenstein, together with some reminders of the historical circumstances in which the story unfolds itself. To support the account, there is a collection of pictures of men, places and documents, which have been chosen as nearly as possible from sources belonging to the period to which they refer. Above all, an attempt has been made, wherever this seemed feasible, to translate philosophic ideas, normally expressed only in words, into diagrams that convey the same information by way of geometrical metaphor.
