Western Philosophy by Shyam Mehta
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


No one has the time or inclination to read a large book on Western philosophy. You are busy. The problem with large books, as most books on Western philosophy are, is that you cannot see the wood for the trees. In this lighthearted book, the author examines the main subject matters on which Western philosophy debates. In every science, there are assumptions, analysis and conclusions. The author shows that the subject matter of Western philosophy, the conclusions, are similar to the assumptions, and that if one cuts out all unnecessary paperwork, Western philosophy is easily understandable by everyone. He believes, however, that with the amount of written work that the typical Western philosopher produces on any one topic, that the philosophers themselves do not understand their own analyses and frequently make mistakes. The roots of all Western philosophy came from India and then two gentlemen, by the names of Socrates and Plato, became famous as the greatest or perhaps nearly greatest Western philosophers of all time. The author discusses their work, again in brief. His conclusion is that there is nothing of value to be learnt from Western philosophy.
