Sintesi dell'editore

These two great 17th-century philosophers aimed to break free of oppressive traditions. Free scientific inquiry led them to skeptically question everything, though they also tried to reconcile science with religious faith. Both Descartes and Bacon extolled the individual, arguing that the human mind can penetrate the deepest secrets of existence. Their ideas formulated the problems that would occupy philosophers for the next 300 years.

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.

More Descartes than Bacon

Very detailed (and accurate) summary of Descartes's philosophy. Much less info about Bacon.

Interesting overview

I have been interested in philosophy and critical thinking lately. This short 2.5 hour book gives a nice overview of some historical moments in philosophy. Lynn Redgrave has a nice voice that matches the material. Other voice actors did the quotations.

Ok book, horrible style narration

The book itself is decent. Easy to follow and explained in enough detail and difficulty for a layperson to read/listen.

The huge problem with the audiobook version is the chosen narration style. It is NOT the narrator themselves. The lady narrating is very good. What sucks is when someone is quoted there is a cartoon style voice role playing their lines. Cheesy accents based on stereotypes are used to quote the person who are being quoted. It is unbearable to listen to.

This particular audiobook deserves 1/5. The contents of the book are ok.

Not Great

Though informative, over three-quarters of the treatment is concerned with Descartes, leaving very little room for Bacon and leaving Modern Philosophy as an after thought tacked on as a closing paragraph. There's also problems with the recording at certain points throughout making it quite irritating to listen to at times.

If you want to learn more about Descartes than Bacon this is probably good as an introduction, but don't expect much else.

Good to include Bacon, whatever his peccadillos!

I’m getting so pleased about these presentations that readers may think I work for the company, so let’s make a very minor carp:
The actor whose phone French accent annoyed me in a previous review has now gone on to assign - correctly- an Italian accent for Ansrlm(o) and an awful attempt at a German one for Luther, but he Irish one tops them all for incompetence! Please stick to American English: it’s more honest and less irritating.
All this carping, however, detracts very little from my enjoyment and pleasure in learning from these excellent presentations.
Thank you!

Great summary

Mainly about Rene Descartes, great but annoying foreign accents used when directly quoting the philosopher or other philosophers.
