How the World Thinks: a Global History of Philosophy, CD-Audio Book

How the World Thinks: a Global History of Philosophy CD-Audio

Narrated by Julian Baggini

CD-Audio

Description

All cultures are different, and have different ways of thinking.

In How the World Thinks, Julian Baggini travels the globe to provide a hugely wide-ranging map of human thought.

He shows us how distinct branches of philosophy flowered simultaneously in China, India and Ancient Greece, growing from local myths and stories - and how contemporary cultural attitudes, with particular attention to the West, East Asia, the Muslim World and Africa, have developed out of the philosophical histories of their regions.

Interviewing thinkers from all around the world, he asks why, for instance, do our European systems of governments and justice differ so widely from the East?

Why can Islam not easily incorporate secular knowledge?

How do we understand China? By gaining greater knowledge of how others think, we can become less certain of the knowledge we think we have, the first step to greater understanding.
