This encyclopedia for all-ages is a humorous and scholarly work which goes through 3000 years of philosophical thought. All the philosophical schools from Ancient Greece to the German school, the English Empiricists, the French Rationalists, the Chinese, Indian, and Arabic schools, as well as medieval thought are represented in this unique album. Through 60 episodes, Jul and Pépin manage to make accessible the biographies of almost all the great philosophers; from Plato to Montaigne, Descartes, Bernard-Henry Lévy, Spinoza, Foucault, Sartres or Confucius. These authors, who have already collaborated on various special issues of Philosophie Magazine (Philosophy Magazine), break down the philosopher’s main lines of thought using humor and digestible encyclopedic snapshots, ideal for coming to terms with the various concepts.
