Reviews - What do customers think about The Great Philosophers From Socrates to Turing?

the best kind of introductory philosophy  Aug 28, 2003
i love ray monk's chapter on russell, showing in crisp, simple prose the increditably complex journey that russell took in moving from his 'class' conception on the foundations of math. to his eventual 'no-class' theory.

up to now, only expert, technical books have dealt with this subject. now an expert philosopher has explained it in a very exciting way to laymen, one of the best & exciting intro. essay to philosophy of math. and analytic philosophy. Definitely a text to consider for use in undergraduate intro. classes in analytic philosophy.

i like some of the other essays as well, while a few i have yet to read. strange though, that a book on the great philosophers would omit aristotle, kant & frege. but monk said publication deadline was to blame.
