From Kant to William James and the American Pragmatists

The Story of Philosophy is a timeless overview of Western thought. Will Durant's goal was to humanize knowledge by centering the story around certain dominant personalities. He brilliantly illustrates how philosophy has evolved over time, explaining the historical, cultural, and political context of each movement and each great thinker. The bestselling philosophy book of the past century, this masterpiece of eloquent, clear prose continues to fascinate. This volume spans the 18th century to the 20th century and discusses philosophical movements and times of Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Spencer, Nietzsche, Bergson, Croce, Russell, Santayana, James, and Dewey.
