    Good, and different, introduction to the history of philosophy from a Spanish philosopher that followed Ortega I thought his treatment of ancient Greek philosophy the pre Socratics, Sophists, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle was very well done Where Russell focuseson the history, Mar as foc...

    This book has its flaws, but it is undoubtedly the best single volume history of philosophy I have read Unlike Russell, Marias deals a fair hand to even those he disagrees with, he acknowledges the gaps in his own knowledge, and time and again points out that his reductions are by no means a substitute for the vast swaths of direct sources he s covering Unlike many other historians of philosophy, he focuseson the thought of these thinkers rather than their life stories and he does a fa This book has its flaws, but it is undoubtedly the best single...

    The exposition of the ideas of the thinkers presented here is quite well done However, in terms of historiography the book is exactly what you d expect from a white dude from the 1940s a history of lots and lots of other white men As is custom for this type of historiography, right at the beginning he kicks India and China out of the equation, in order to then proceed to pull off the usual Presocratics, Aristole, Plato etc., some Roman stuff, Medieval Aquinas, Scotus , Modern then Descartes The exposition of the ideas of the thinkers presented here is quite well done However, in terms of historiography the book is exactly what you d expect from a white dude from the 1940s a history of lots and lots of other white men As is custom f...

    A compelling, if sometimes hard to understand, history of philosophy Marias is an insightful authority on these matters, but often can be somewhat of a self promoter in his writing, almost always hearkening back to Ortega and the Madrid School to which he was a member in his analysis Still, this book gave me a lot of great insight into the development of philosophy, explained the problems posed by each of the thinkers in great detail, and was able to expose me to a lot of obscure philosopher A compelling, if sometimes hard to understand, history of philosophy Marias is an insightful authority on these matters, but often can be somewhat of a self promoter in his writing, almost always hearkening back to Ortega and the Madrid School to which he was a member in his analysis Still, this book gave me a lot of great insight into the development of philosophy, explained the problems posed by each of the thinkers in great detail, and was able to expose me to a lot of ob...

    it is alright, gives a brief history about the important philosophers My problem with this book is that some of Latin and Greek sentences are not translated which was very confusing There are much better books if you are interested in philosophy.

    Not as good as other books of this nature Some of Marias s discussions just aren t interesting enough He fills in a lot of unnecessary details However, some of his insights are worthwhile.

    Not a bad work, but start with Bryan Magee s The Story of Philosophy first.
