Abstract

2500 years ago, Socrates posed the question, how are we to live? Even today, he provokes us to ask ourselves how we can live an ethical life. How may we live in a harmonious society which at the same time respects and defends the rights of the individual? Throughout the course of Western civilization, philosophers have tried to answer these and other questions in an effect to make sense of the human condition. This book traces the most significant philosophical, scientific and cultural ideas of the past three thousand years and boldly explores the development of the Western mind. It draws upon a wide range of ideas that make up the Western tradition of thought and culture and presents them in this rigourous, but also lively and accessible account.
