A Cook's Tour of Philosophy

What was the real impact of the leading philosophers?

We bandy round the names of great philosophers and we know they’ve had huge impact on how we think and what we think, but what exactly did they say and what was so remarkable about it? This deeply superficial tour will tell you!

• Plato and Aristotle - Where it all began
• Aquinas and Maimonides
• Descartes, Voltaire and the Enlightenment
• Mill and the triumph of pragmatism.
• Hegel and Kant
• Ayer and the terrifying potential dead-end
• Rorty, Rawls and Runciman - what do modern
philosophers say?
