By discussing major philosophers and schools of thought within their cultural and historical context, Soccio introduces students to Western philosophy as a search for wisdom that is both worthwhile for its own sake and a foundation for the search for meaning. He begins with the pre-Socratics, progresses to Nietzsche, then discusses some examples of modern people using philosophy as a way of life. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
