MADSEN PIRIE is President of the Adam Smith Institute and author of numerous books including Boost Your IQ and The Sherlock Holmes IQ Book. He was formerly Distinguished Visiting Professor of Philosophy and Logic at Hillsdale College, Michigan, USA. He appears regularly as an expert on CNN and BBC television.
"A lecturer and TV commentator on economics and political philosophy based in Cambridge, England, Pirie offers a new take on philosophy 101 by summarizing in little over a page the ideas of thinkers he considers to have had most impact and significance on human thought. Some of those included who are not usually thought of as philosophers are Archimedes, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Mary Shelly, and Charles Darwin. The arrangement is chronological, but the philosophers are indexed as well." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc. '[A] handsome armchair guide ... Pirie's gentle invitation to the rich treasure house of thinking that has been home to our civiliztion is terribly geniuine and persuasive.' - Good Book Guide 'Fans of the "dip-in-and-have-a-go" approach to philosophy should form an orderly queue.' - City AM Reviewed in The Guardian, 2010.
