The Consequences Of Ideas: Understanding The Concepts That Shaped Our World
By: R.C. Sproul
I can make this review very brief: Read it! How’s that for brief? Quite simply, this is just an excellent book. It deals with the philosophers who have most influenced the modern world and their ideas. Doesn’t sound too thrilling huh? Well, you’ll really learn a lot about philosophical thought and it’s history (how could that not be thrilling?). You’ll learn about thinkers such as Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Marx, Darwin, Kierkegaard and many more and see how their thought effects our every day life. R.C. Sproul is a great author and this might be his best book. I feel a little tempted to ramble on and on so let me cut it short before you fall asleep. The best I can say is: Read it!
