Sintesi dell'editore

In an age of conflicting intellectual trends, some philosophers have lost faith in the everyday relevance of philosophy; others have affirmed that reflection is crucial to authentic living. The limelight has been shared by existentialism, phenomenology, structuralism, and other movements. The question remains: what is the next great step in philosophy?

The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

The insufferable accent imitation

Overall a decent 'Philosophy 101', but the attempts on european accents of the male narrator make it impossible to listen.

Very Complicated Subject Matter Gets Muddled

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

More clarity on the distinct people with, perhaps fewer people highlighted.

What was most disappointing about Professor Ed Casey’s story?

I don't have a clear idea of who's who and what's what.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I admit that the narrator did as well as she could.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Confusion.

Any additional comments?

Yeah, nowhere in the description does it list the philosophers who were gone over. I had to look at the tiny photo of the cover to get their names so I can look them up on WikiPedia.

I get the feeling that this series is just cranking out books without any real concern about how hard it is to comprehend.

Those poor accents have been butchered

The unending deluge of shi#ily affected accents makes parts of this book d@mn near unintelligible. For the subject of philosophy, that’s probably not a good thing, but for this particular subject matter it may be an improvement. If this were the only source of information I wouldn’t be able to answer that question.

Bizzare but creative fun. Wordsmiths on acid.

Wild unfettered poetic insanity.
Humans are crazy and human philosophy and ideology is only even crazier if that is possible. The great thinkers of the 20th Century were as uninformed and dangerous to reason as those from any medieval epoch. Highly entertaining. Completely off the wall. A great listen. No wonder revolution, warfare, oppression, depravity and ecological degradation and it's all it's accompanying murderous apologetic and rethorical pseudojustifacations reigned supreme for that sorry Century! May we naively wish for a better 21th Century. So far it's seems to be just as disappointing...

Philosophers coming to death...

... in this reading, where the narration read by a woman is interrupted by a man reading the original passages. I see no need to change the reader for these quotes but even if there might be good reasons that I don't know of, the pseudo continental accents, a mix of what the reader considers to be German and French accents are simply insufferable.
