WESTERN PHILOSOPHY IN 100 HAIKU //// TRANSLATED FROM THE GREEK BY PETER MACKRIDGE




Το βιβλίο του Χάρη Βλαβιανού  Η ιστορία της δυτικής φιλοσοφίας σε 100 χαϊκού: από τους Προσωκρατικούς έως τον Ντεριντά, μεταφρασμένο στα αγγλικά από τον Peter Mackridge, κυκλοφορεί  από τις εκδόσεις Dedalus

 From the pre-Socratics to modern figures including Derrida and Martha Nussbaum,The  History of Western Philosophy in 100 Haiku undertakes the daunting task of conveying the breadth and richness of 2,500 years of western thought-through the 3-line form of the Japanese haiku.
   The result is a brilliantly witty survey of western philosophy,viewed through the frame of a parallel tradition.
    An ideal gift for the budding and the seasoned philosopher alike.
