It is part of my series of books on cultural history.

Human History as Cultural History

We need to reform our teaching of history, so that emphasis will be placed on the gradual growth of human culture and knowledge, a growth to which all nations and ethnic groups have contributed. In fact, the millennia-long accumulation of knowledge and culture is a much more important part of human history than the wars and power struggles of national governments.

“Lives of Some Great Philosophers” is part of a series on cultural history. Here is a list of the other books in the series that have, until now, been completed:
