Useful as an introduction
3 stars By nat, Sep 09 2018
Sproul's book outlines some of the key ideas in the history of philosophy from the pre-Socratics to late modern thinkers. It is most useful for laypersons who have little (but some) knowledge of important philosophical figures. As may be expected of an overview (of any finite length, but especially one this brief), it does not represent all the central ideas in philosophy, not even all the important ideas of the people described therein. Indeed, readers with more philosophical background may find this book tedious for its brevity. Instead, Sproul's goal is to give the reader an understanding of how some ideas originated and have developed, which is important because (as Sproul explains in the introduction) ideas can have important consequences. With this goal in mind, this book is an excellent introduction to some key philosophical ideas. Two weaknesses of this book. First, it is not as clear why these philosophical ideas are in Sproul's opinion the key ones. He says little about what the consequences of these ideas are, especially in the early chapters of the book. Second, Sproul also says little about whether he agrees with the ideas presented by each philosopher, though this becomes clearer in later chapters. So the reader should read most of this book only as representative of what the particular philosophers thought, not the opinions of the author, nor even the consensus in philosophy today.

Excellent summary
4 stars By Tyler, Dec 23 2014
A great summary and introduction to philosophies and their implications. Really good food for though, not a difficult read and well worth the time! R C Sproul does an excellent job of introducing and explaining key figures and their philosophies highlighting their impact on further thought.
