Richard David Precht erklärt uns in drei Bänden die großen Fragen, die sich die Menschen durch die Jahrhunderte gestellt haben. Im ersten Teil seiner auf drei Bände angelegten Geschichte der Philosophie beschreibt Richard David Precht die Entwicklung des abendländischen Denkens von der Antike bis zum Mittelalter. Kenntnisreich und detailliert verknüpft er die Linien der großen Menschheitsfragen und verfolgt die Entfaltung der wichtigsten Ideen – von den Ursprungsgefilden der abendländischen Philosophie an der schönen Küste Kleinasiens bis in die Klöster und Studierstuben, die Kirchen und Machtzentren des Spätmittelalters. Dabei bettet er die Philosophie in die politischen, wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Fragen der jeweiligen Zeit ein und macht sie auf diese Weise auch für eine größere Leserschaft lebendig. Ein Buch, das dazu hilft, sich einen tiefen Einblick in die Geschichte der Philosophie zu verschaffen und die Dinge zu ordnen. Tauchen Sie ein in die schier unerschöpfliche Fülle des Denkens!

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in German, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.
