The book is very comprehensive well structured so you can easily find your way around and most of all readable for the interested layperson like myself who wants to delve into this subject without having too much difficulty understanding of its subject matterI shall update my review when I ve completed reading the bookUPDATED REVIEWGrayling s History of PhilosophyI have now completed Anthony Grayling s History of Philosophy and can truly say that it is a comprehensive and highly impressive workIt covers not only the history of western philosophy as Bertand Russell s book did over 70 years ago but also philosophies from around the world including India China Arabia and Africa In addition there are a number of specific chapters covering themes and developments in philosophy that bring the subject right up to date Examples include Popper s theory of falsification the debate between Rawls and Nozick and various schools that have emerged in the twentieth century such as the movement in analytical philosophy and the existentialism of Sartre and Camus Indeed Grayling s history covers just about everythingBut apart from the sheer comprehensiveness of the book Grayling gets the writing almost perfect not too difficult yet also not over simplified as one often gets these days with mini type histories of philosophy offering no other than snapshots of philosophers and their ideas that fail to bring the subject alive for the readerGrayling says at the very beginning of the book that he read Russell s History of Western Philosophy as a schoolboy and relished the clarity of its prose and wit At the same time he recognised that it was not always accurate What Grayling does and does very well is use Russell as a role model whilst at the same time you feel you are in the hands of a impartial writer giving a accurate account of the philosophical landscape than you would be getting from RussellAcademics often scoff at Russell s work but for the general reader his introduction to philosophy has remained supreme for a very long time This is because Russell was a great writer and communicator His chapter on Nietzsche is a case in point Academics perhaps rightly may consider it rather shallow with not enough depth Yet for the general reader the dialogue envisaged by Russell of an imaginary Buddha and Nietzsche stood before the Great Almighty arguing their respective corners is wonderfully doneHowever Grayling has his own style and provides some wonderful anecdotes and asides along the way Towards the end of the book we have the story between the duke and the bishop when discussing inferences in reasoning His insertion of Shelley s Ozymandias as he reflects on who will be remembered in one hundred years time in the philosophical world is beautifully done And earlier in the volume Grayling provides some wonderful anecdotes when writing about McTaggart Bradley and RussellIn addition Grayling s work is much greater in scope than Russell s The sections on contemporary philosophers eg Husserl Heidegger and Merleau Ponty philosophical movements eg Existentialism logical positivism and virtue ethics and world philosophies China India and Africa are not covered in Russell s earlier history Indeed compared to Russell whose history ended with relatively short accounts of Bergson the American pragmatists James and Dewey and a chapter on The Philosophy of Logical Analysis Grayling s new history stands tallThe book is also structured particularly well Starting at the beginning with the Presocratic philosophers the book progresses through all the centuries and movements right up to modern times It ends with two impressive small chapters one that touches on the value of philosophy Concluding Remarks and a second that touches on common fallacies in reasoning A Sketch of Logic Both are very goodGrayling writes in his concluding remarks Philosophy is the refusal to be lazy about the great uestions It patrols the circumference of the little patch of light that is knowledge looking out into the dark of ignorance to seek the shapes there I don t think anyone having read the book could disagree with himIn short it is refreshing to have a different philosopher with a different voice write about topics and ideas that are truly fascinating Indeed Grayling s book has helped to consolidate my own knowledge on certain topics and furthered my understanding of the subject as a whole to which I am gratefulI have read a few of Grayling s other books but this one in my opinion is his greatest achievement so far His other books I find difficult and the writing a little too complicated neither of which is the case with this volume Indeed if it doesn t replace Russell s work as the standard introduction to philosophy a book that has stood the test of time for over 70 years then it should certainly be read alongside it Highly recommendedI hope you find my review helpful
