Despite odd behavior, philosophers of the Western world are among the most brilliant and influential thinkers of all time. As you learn about these great thinkers, you'll learn how many of the fundamental ideas of Western Civilization originated. You'll also get a chance to ask yourself some of the same questions these great thinkers pondered.
