    2. fantastic basic starter into types of philosophy throughout history and the world. Very easy to put everything into context and discover who or what schools of thought you might yourself be more interested in discovering in more detail.

    3. A good introduction to philosophical terminologies in simple parlance, provides very good illustrations and comparisons between eastern and western philosophies. Could be a good read for those curious minds who would like to know the history of philosophy and different facets of it.

    4. This book was an excellent companion to my Intro to Philosophy class. It is clear and to the point, with plenty of examples and definitions. Being a DK book, it is also laden with illustrations and photos, and is a handy reference, or even a good read on its own.

    5. This is a great book to open your eyes to philosophy, and to get an idea about the many philosophers from the begining to the presant. It is an overview of the many forms of philosophy.
