Just the facts

Just as the title says this is a VERY brief look into a few of the major philosophies throughout history. It is the CliffNotes version of Philosophy 101. But I liked it. It reminded me of several of the important themes and ideas from each of the different philosophies. Each was just in-depth enough to provide some understanding and trigger a desire to research more.
