HOW THE WORLD THINKS: A GLOBAL HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY

Synopsis

All cultures are different, and have different ways of thinking. Julian Baggini travels the globe to provide a hugely wide-ranging map of human thought. He shows us how distinct branches of philosophy flowered simultaneously in China, India and Ancient Greece, growing from local myths and stories - and how contemporary cultural attitudes have developed out of the philosophical histories of their regions.
