Publisher's Summary

Part of the second batch of Routledge Classics

Scruton is a very famous (infamous in fact), self styled intellectual and thinker 

Very well established text—we have sold close to 40,000 of the two editions 

This is the perfect introduction for anyone approaching the subject for the first time—concise and accessible.

Critic Reviews

"Dr Scruton writes with an unusual clarity and fluency, and is always a pleasure to read . . . this is certainly a book which you could give to anyone who was curious about philosophy and expect them to learn a lot from it." - Alan Ryan, author of Bertrand Russell: A Political Life

"Anyone seeking a short and intelligible introduction to the ideas and intentions of Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Hegel and Marx, among others, need look no further." - Good Book Guide

"In his work as a philosopher and aesthetician he's an exhaustive reducer to first principles, while in his books for the interested non-specialist he's as first-rate a popularizer as David Attenborough and John Keegan." - Salon
