Highly praised by reviewers for its clarity and rich exposition, this history of philosophy book illustrates philosophy as a process and not just a collection of opinions or conclusions. Lawhead helps readers retrace the philosopher's intellectual journey rather than simply giving a report of the results so that the readers see how the problems arose. Thus the philosopher's problem becomes a puzzle which the reader has to face. Lawhead uses metaphors, analogies, vivid images, concrete examples, common experiences, and diagrams to bring the abstract issues down to earth and show the practical implications and contemporary relevance of positions.
