Philosopher Books and a theme from each book

timer Asked: Apr 6th, 2016

Question description

Using the the information given in the “Thinkers Outline” as the backbone of your presentation, write an essay introducing Philosophy by technique of “historical sweep”.  Begin with a ten to twelve word


thesis statement, which includes the definition of Philosophy and encapsules the entire essay. Then follow this opening statement with a historical sweep of Philosophy.  Include the names and dates of the fourteen philosophers discussed in this course and the main idea for each one. Identify the books they wrote, if they wrote any, and a short answer concerning “one” major theme discussed from each book.  Incorporate into your essay the theme “reality has a beginning, a middle, and an end”.  Comment on this theme once from material discussed before the fourteen Philosophers, three times from material discussed during the fourteen Philosophers, and once from material discussed after the fourteen Philosophers.




Ok thats the assignment. I already have my thesis, the years of the 14 philosophers I should write about and some of the books. My Teacher told us its 14 philosophers, 19 books total (5 of which belong to Plato) but I am clearly missing 3 of the books somewhere. Below is the name of the philosophers and the books Ive found so far:


1. Anaxagoras- ?


2. Democritus- ?


3. Socrates- ?


4. Plato- Republic, Timaeus, Apology, Phaedo


5. Aristotle- De Caelo, Physica, Metaphysica


6. Descartes- Principles of Philosophy


7. Spinoza- Ethics


8. Leibniz- Discourse of Metaphysica


9. Hume- Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion


10. Kant- Critique of Pure Reason


11. Kierkegaard- Concluding Unscientific Postscript


12. Russell- Problems of Philosophy


13. Sarte- No Exit


14. Kitcher- Believing where we cannot prove


I only have 16 books out of the 19. Also can you share one main theme in each that relates to "reality has a beginning a middle and an end", no need for huge explorations
