A card set featuring 20 of the greatest ideas from Western Philosophy.
Philosophy is a discipline committed to helping us live wiser and less sorrowful lives. This card set draws together twenty of the greatest ideas found in Western philosophy, spanning the history of thought from Socrates to Jean-Paul Sartre. Each is displayed on a beautiful illustrated card. We are reminded of the wit, humanity and relevance of a number of philosophes including Nietzsche and Heidegger, Kant and Camus, Machiavelli and Kierkegaard. Essential thoughts about love, work, anxiety, self-knowledge and happiness are rescued, highlighted and inspiringly presented here so they can work their consoling effect where it is more needed: in our daily lives.
