Not yet rated | write a review
Philosophy can't be pinned down. There are histories that attempt to stitch the whole convoluted thing up into a single long, coherent sequence of events. Other books are organized thematically. Here we have metaphysics. This is ethics. Here's what we know about the nature of knowledge. Some of these books are excellent, but they're all attempts to civilize something wild, something the mostly mistrusts authority, something that's really only human, something messy that moves around in several different directions at once. Maybe that's the best way to pass along a feel for this kind of thing is to do what people have always done when they've got a great deal of complicated information to convey, and that's tell a story.' - James Garvey and Jeremy Stangroom.
