Summary

As you study the first of the three philosophers detailed in this book, you will most likely realize how sophisticated and intelligent Rene Descartes was. His rationalism and his logical conclusions have paved the way for rhetoric discussion about the essence of one’s existence and the idea of God. His speeches about material will be outlined and summarized, and many important quotes and background information will be given. 

After this, the guide will touch on Friedrich Nietzsche’s ideas. This man’s influence is undoubtedly grand and impressive. His nihilism and his theories about the free will we all possess as human beings have helped people become more accomplished and motivated. 

The last thinker of the 20th century is Karl Marx. And despite the many good and bad faces of communism that have been applied in the past 100 years, it’s important to note that Karl Marx’s ideas were unique, fresh, and fascinating, especially when you consider his ethics and views on capitalism, social systems, ideologies, and civilization in general. 

Become more familiar with these men and their inspiring ideas about life, society, and so much more.

If you ask me, there is perhaps absolutely...

If you ask me, there is perhaps absolutely nothing better on the marketplace about this particular concept. I was genuinely inspired by this audio book. I took advantage of this audiobook. It was an eye-opener. I was intending to learn more about this idea anyway, so it was no coincidence that I came across this. I listened to it, and certainly not to my surprise, it was precisely what I was searching for.

The big difference between this one and...

The big difference between this one and some other books, is actually that this book is much better. I wanted to mention a little something about this specific book, and so I am making the effort to write a customer review. I did not stop listening till the end. That's just how much I appreciated it. I was delighted to hear the right articulation of all the words by a proficient audiobook narrator.

I just intended to write something positive about this book. Both the storyteller and the author put some true effort into this. This is the supreme combination of a great narrator and an excellent writer, who partnered and chose to turn this book into a helpful item. Great for them.

This is just one of the best audiobooks I have found, which is the reason I am taking a tiny minute to write a customer review about it. This the best audiobooks I have listened to, which is the reason why I am taking a small second to write a comment about it. I didn't stop listening until the end. That's just how much I thought of it. I was happy to hear the appropriate articulation of all the words by a competent audiobook producer.

It's lovely to tune in to a book such as this one. In my perspective, it was pretty great. There might perhaps have been a couple of hardly detectable errors in there, but they didn't bother me. When you can listen to a storyteller who is that great, and about a topic that you're interested in, you don't care about the rest. That's the end of the that. The thoughts from the writer made sense to me. I agreed with all the things, and that's one more reason the reason why I am so fired up about this book. The author didn't arbitrarily pick little bits and pieces of bad suggestions, but instead, analyzed the claims enough.

I could probably list ten points why I appreciate this audio book, but my time is important to me, so this customer review should not be too long. Both the storyteller and the writer put some genuine work into this. I thoroughly appreciated listening to this particular book. It has all of the elements of a publication regarding this theme that it should have. Having said that, I am normally happy about things anyway. This is a secret jewel. This audiobook incorporates useful points. The narrator's voice was simply calming. Did I already specify that it seemed really professional? Well, it did. Certainly, and that's the main reason that I just liked paying attention to it a lot.

Plenty of good content

This audiobook has plenty of great content. The very best parts of this book (I forgot which chapters) meant the most to me. When I heard these things, I quickly understood I had made the ideal choice. This book talked to me. Initially, I was questioning where exactly it was going, but after listening to it for some time, I got into it. Then I saw this book for what it was: A fantastic work by an educated writer and expert narrator.

Great

I do not feel you have to keep searching. This audiobook explains everything. I wish I was really great at publishing testimonials, but you'll just have to be satisfied with this mediocre recommendation, namely, that the book was interesting all the way through, until the very end. The thoughts from the writer made sense to me. I agreed with everything, and that's yet another reason that I am so thrilled about this book. The writer did not randomly choose bits and pieces of wrong advice, but rather, sorted out the statements enough.

Very nice book

These ideas that are explained in this book about the philosophers, are great. I guess you could say that the communist regime was based on a philosophy, but that the political side may have deviated from that in a lot of ways. Rationalism is actually one of my favorite philosophy aspects. I love the logic behind it, and the principles that are explained.
