Introduction to Philosophy: From The Presocratics To Aristotle
How to understand philosophy without reading thousands of pages — An intelligent quick introduction.
Understanding what is Philosophy is considered difficult.
Because of its time span: 2400 years.
Because of the hundreds of authors.
Because of difficult theories, to quote only some common reasons.
Nevertheless, the Western world is rooted in Philosophy.
The Ancient Greeks started a completely new and revolutionary way of thinking.
The Myths were replaced by observation and reason.
These new tools offered a new explanation of Nature, of the world and of our place within it.
They provided a method to understand reality.
This book will guide you through the origin of Philosophy and its most important developments.
The second part of this book is dedicated to the philosophy in practice: a series of articles to practice philosophy in our daily life.
This is the first volume of a series that intends to initiate the young student to the great thinkers of our culture while offering a starting point to all those who are interested in Philosophy for their own information and cultural interest.
I just want you to start a great and exciting journey which could satisfy a curiosity at first but which could become a lifelong research and discovery, as it happened to myself.
“We stand on the shoulders of giants” means simply that you need to know those giants of the Western world, explore their thinking and enrich yourself of their dreams, efforts and their thinking. Here I am offering you a ladder to claim on their shoulders!
As you know, I cannot climb the ladder for you: you have to walk the path yourself. What I am offering you is your first step: grab this book and then carry on.
In fact, you have nothing to lose if you are unwilling to continue the reading you can get a refund from Amazon.
And if you have a friend that you know will love this book, you can lend it for two weeks.
The point is that I wrote this book for someone who is interested in learning about Philosophy – if you are not interested, if you don’t really want to do your part, if you don’t want to take a step on this knowledge ladder, then this is not for you and I am perfectly fine with that! Just don’t buy it.
For all the rest, you will love it. I will provide here the stimuli, the ingredients for you to cook a great piece of information on how to understand the world and ourselves.
