Gul agha Icon : (03 May 2013 - 04:29 PM) Sohrab, Tajikam doesn't only consist of a forum. We have two major sections in this website. One is in Persian which is updated frequently and the other is in Persian (Cyrillic). Additionally, the English page is still running and has a vast amount of information on Tajiks and Persians.

Posted ImageKnowledge and the sudden experience of understanding can be as thrilling as the solution to any puzzle or riddle, since knowledge always resolves a mystery-that of not knowing. Most people are familiar with the names Plato, Machiavelli, Spinoza, and Simone de Beauvoir, but remain unsure of their significance. Philosophy: 100 Essential Thinkers provides succinct descriptions of the essential thought of one hundred major philosophers, including some who are not seen primarily as philosophers, such as Darwin, Freud, and Einstein. Presenting biographical details, quotations, and clear explanations, Philosophy serves as a thorough and accessible introduction to the Western intellectual tradition, covering philosophical, scientific, political, and religious thought over a period of 2,500 years.

Dorood Superior jaan,

Thanks for good posting. I am intrigued by the book. I am going to buy this book soon, when I got enough saving. I read all reviews and it seems to be a good book. Thanks for posting.

Have your read this book? If you had, please tell us how was your reaction? What's your overall ranking of the book? Thanks.


Peroz bemaned,

Dear PORS,

It is indeed an interesting book which deals with the introduction of Men of Philosophy; it is a good book recommanded for beginners. Each of the philosphers has written one or more books which project their theories and ideas that has had impacts on the course of Philosophy.

Cheers.

Dorood Superior jaan,

By the way, I bought this book today from Borders store. I scanned the book, and it is very interesting and compact. However, I don't know the sense of the book until I read it completely, so thanks for posting and good luck in all you do.

The whole book in PDF format is downloadable from rapipidshare. Did you try that option before spending your precious money in Borders ? You can still get your money back if you download the whole book.

Dorood DooDooli jaan,

Thank you for reminding about the option to download it online. Yes, you are right, one does not have to spend money when there is another "easier" option available. However, I love book and reading it electronically does not give me full sense of the book. I reviewed it electronically, downloading via rapidshare, then because I liked it I bought it. It is the cost of my one day launch, $12, for which I can fast a day and have a book for me forever. Every single penny I have spent for books, I have never regreted it. Because, the wisdom it gave me is much more than I spent for it. Thank you very much, though. I deeply appreciate what you have thought and said of me.

Dorood DooDooli jaane gerame,


I would like to state the poem by our great Tajik-Parsa personality, which states:

??? ??? ? ?? ??? ??? ?? ???
??? ?? ??? ??? ? ??? ?? ???
??? ???

(Kherad darad, ay per, besyar nam,)
(Rasanad kherad Parsara ba kam.) - Ferdousi

??? ?? ??? ??, ?? ??? , ??? ?? ??? ,
??? ? ??? ??? ?? ??? ? ??? ?? ??? .
??? ? ??? ?

DooDooli jaane gerame, I would like to see our prosperity with no end, as you have mentioned, full of wisdom.

I have finished reading the book and have to say that it's really concise and brief. I would give it C+. Thanks for recommending the book.

Another very approachable book which starts with a very short introduction of each major philosopher (beginning with Plato, Aristotle, Descartes and ending in Frege, Russsel and Wittgenstein) followed by a question and answer investigation with a contemporary expert of the said philosopher is the following book:
THE GREAT PHILOSOPHERS
by BRYAN MAGEE
"One of the liveliest, fast-paced introductions to philosophy, ancient and modern, that one could wish for"

That is if you have another $12 to spare :D ;) But I am sure for an expert of your caliber this book will just be an entertaining review and you need only borrow it from a friend like Nader Shah when you visit him :D

Save that book for me then, so I don't have to spend $12. It will be another motive to visit you. ;)

Well..it is not so important to know al those philosophers but to khow how their thougts and ideologies are shifted. So in that case it is important to begin knowing the pre-Socratic philosophers. You can then analyse the ideas of the first philosophers and you will see that modern philosophers aren't ''the creators'' of their own ideologies.

The book does not cover only presocratics, but also covers all earas including modern. Starts from presocratic ends to 21st century philosophers. One thing book lacks is that its western oriented book. Does not include any Persian thinkers and philosophers. Hence, could be better.
