This is an auction for A LITTLE HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY, by Nigel Warburton. reviews:

"Warburton is impressively thorough for such a short book. One might gripe that he really only covers western philosophy or that he neglects the role of language, logic, and philosophy of mathematics in 20th century anglophone philosophy, but those are very minor points. This is not intended to be a deep, philosophical treatise. It's a survey for the curious, and it does really well for that. If you're curious about philosophy and particularly if you know a young person who might get a kick out of philosophical thinking, this is a fine book."

"This publication is so easy to read and follow that it is unlikely you'll ever again be bamboozled by pretentious grand statements. Essentially, each philosopher is reduced to a bare-bones analysis which can be sufficient in itself or allow further in-depth study. For simple realistic awareness of different philosophers and their place in the history of ideas, this book is a gem. As unlikely as it might seem, Warburton has made philosophy easy and accessible. I am lead to suspect (after having struggled with some weightier tomes) that my IQ is marginally greater than my shoe size. Give yourself a lift; read this."
