A C Grayling at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

One of the country’s foremost philosophers, A C Grayling has produced a brilliantly readable and authoritative survey of his discipline – the first in a generation. The History of Philosophy is a landmark tome, bringing western and eastern thought together and charting a path from Buddha and Confucius through the Enlightenment to philosophers writing now. Professor Grayling explores the legacies of what we’ve learnt in this event filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
