Great Thinkers Of The Eastern World

£4.99

Product description

Great Thinkers of the Eastern World is a concise and authoritative guide to the principal theoretical ideas of the outstanding thinkers in Eastern history. From Confucius to Nishitani Keiji, these men and women have profoundly influenced the development of Eastern civilisations through their theories and revolutionary ideas and by providing intellectual, scientific or spiritual illumination. Articles on over 100 thinkers are arranged chronologically, making it easy for readers to follow and appreciate the development of ideas from 600 B.C. through the twentieth century. Each article provides basic biographical information, a list of the thinker's major works, a summary of his or her principal ideas, an essay explaining the thinker's most significant theories and indicating his or her place in the history of thought and a brief bibliography of further readings. An absorbing, accessible and highly informative introduction to the greatest minds of Eastern civilisations, Great Thinkers of the Eastern World improves our understanding of Eastern schools of thought and how they evolved.

This paperback 1995 first edition is in a good, used condition. The glossy pictorial cover shows few signs of wear and tear and the text block, although yellowing slightly, appears to be clean and unmarked.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
