Product description

Review

"I have never read a book about the ways in which we think that was clearer or more exciting" (John Cleese)

"Quite brilliant" (Guardian)

"[This] magnificent critical survey, with its inherent respect for both the 'West's mainstream high culture' and the 'radically changing world' of the 1990s, offers a new breakthrough for lay and scholarly readers alike... Allows readers to grasp the big picture of Western culture as if for the first time" (San Francisco Chronicle)

"30,000 years of Western thought distilled into a powerful, enthralling narrative" (Sydney Morning Herald)

"An extraordinary work of scholarship. It not only places the history of Western thought in perspective, but offers new insights concerning the evolution of our thinking and the future of the whole human enterprise" (John E. Mack, winner of the Pulitzer Prize)

Book Description

The most lucid and concise presentation of Western thought. The writing is elegant and carries the reader with the momentum of a novel. 'It really is a noble performance.' - Joseph Campbell
