About this item

This work for students and others categorizes philosophers into six major types according to the roles they have enacted in societies over the past 2,500 years: the Natural Philosopher, the Sage, the Gadfly, the Ascetic, the Mandarin, and the Courtier. Chapters devoted to each type look at the various functions that philosophers and philosophy have played in society, charting the evolution of the social role of the philosopher. The book can serve as an introduction to the global history of philosophy for students and scholars. B&w historical illustrations are included.
