Great Thinkers

School of Life

£20.00

The Great Thinkers is a collection of some of the most important ideas of Eastern and Western culture - drawn from the works of those philosophers, political theorists, sociologists, artists and novelists whom we believe have the most to offer to us today.

We've worked hard to make the thinkers in this book clear, relevant and charming, mining the history of knowledge to bring you the ideas we think have the greatest importance to our times. This book contains the canon of The School of Life, the gallery of individuals across the millenia who help to frame our intellectual project - and we have succeeded if, in the days and years ahead, you find yourself turning to our thinkers to illuminate the multiple dilemmas, joys and griefs of daily life.

Thinkers include:

  • Plato
  • Aristotle
  • Friedrich Nietzsche
  • Niccolo Machiavelli
  • John Ruskin
  • Confucius
  • Lao Tzu
  • Max Weber
  • Margaret Mead
  • Sigmund Freud
  • Coco Chanel
  • Andy Warhol
  • Jane Austen
