About the Book

A wise and witty compendium of the greatest thoughts, greatest minds, and greatest books of all time-listed in accessible and succinct form-by one of the worlds greatest scholars. From the "Hundred Best Books" to the "Ten Greatest Thinkers" to the "Ten Greatest Poets," here is a concise collection of the world's most significant knowledge. For the better part of a century, Will Durant dwelled upon-and wrote about-the most significant eras, individuals, and achievements of human history. His selections have finally been brought together in a single, compact volume. Durant eloquently defends his choices of the greatest minds and ideas, but he also stimulates readers into forming their own opinions, encouraging them to shed their surroundings and biases and enter "The Country of the Mind," a timeless realm where the heroes of our species dwell.

From a thinker who always chose to exalt the positive in the human species, The Greatest Minds and Ideas of All Time stays true to Durant s optimism. This is a Book containing the absolute best of our heritage, passed on for the benefit of future generations. Filled with Durant's renowned wit, knowledge, and unique ability to explain events and ideas in simple and exciting terms, this is a pocket-size liberal arts and humanist curriculum in one volume.

About the Author

Will Durant (1885-1981) was awarded the Pulitzer prize (1968) and the Medal of Freedom (1977). He spent more than fifty years writing his critically acclaimed eleven-volume the Story of Civilization (the later volumes written in conjunction with his wife, Ariel). His book The Story of Philosophy (1926) is credited as the work that launched Simon & Schuster as a major publishing force and that introduced more people to the subject of philosophy than any other book. Throughout his life, Durant was passionate in his quest to bring philosophy out of the ivory towers of academia and into the lives of laypeople. An early champion of human rights who brought such issues as the brotherhood of man and social reform to public consciousness, Durant, through his writings, continues to entertain and educate readers the world over, inspiring millions of people to lead lives of greater perspective, understanding, and forgiveness.

John Little is the world's foremost authority on the life, work, and philosophy of Will Durant. Little is the only person ever authorized by the Will Durant estate to review and use the entirety of Durant's writings, personal letters, journals, and essays. He is the founder and director of Will Durant On-Line and has lectured on philosophy in Trinity College, Dublin, and the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television (England). In addition, Little is The Author of numerous books and magazine articles on philosophy as well as men's health and conditioning, and is an award-winning documentary filmmaker.
