Philosophy in 100 Quotes

(Metro Books, Allen & Unwin, 2018)

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” — Socrates

Socrates’ famous quote suggests that if we are not free to explore the fundamental questions of life, and wherever these lead us, then what is the point of living? A great jumping off point into the examined life is to study and understand quotations from the greatest thinkers in history, where even a short sentence can unlock a whole philosophical approach.

Philosophy in 100 Quotes is a compendium of philosophical thoughts from the past two millennia, brought together in the words of the philosophers whose work has changed our understanding of ourselves and the society in which we live. These are quotes that will inform, inspire, and entertain. Accompanying commentary explores their meaning and reveals the life and work of the philosophers who said them.
