Book Cover
A Companion to the Philosophers

A Companion to the Philosophers surveys the major philosophical thinkers in Western and non-Western traditions. Multicultural in its approach, it provides authoritative coverage of the major Chinese, Indian, Japanese, African, Jewish, and Islamic philosophers, as well as European and American thinkers.

Written by a distinguished international assembly of philosophers, A Companion to the Philosophers is ideal for use as an introduction to, or a review of, the major philosophical thinkers of the past 2,000 years. The essays are synoptic in nature but also contain sufficient detail. The Companion is practical for anyone wanting to explore the wisdom of seminal Western figures and the genius of philosophical thought in other cultures.

“This is the sixteenth work in an excellent series, and I greatly enjoyed roaming around in it.” Douglas Brown, Library Review.
