Charting the history of Western thought from Socrates to Sartre, from Epicureans to Existentialists, Western Philosophy Made Easy offers a short, readable historical summary of aspects of Western
philosophy and key philosophers from Ancient Greece to the modern day, with the emphasis on topics of direct relevance to our own lives.
I would consider Western Philosophy Made Easy a go-to resource when considering individual figures (Spinoza made more sense after reading this book), and for getting a wide view of many thinkers. Author Dennis Waite breaks down complex thoughts and intricate theories into chewable pieces for the reader. This book took me back to my early days of first encountering philosophy and the long, long list of names that often get peppered into academic discussions. JD DeHart | NetGalley
