A unique selection of the greatest thinkers from the fields of philosophy, political theory, sociology, art, architecture and literature, with enjoyable profiles of what they have to teach to us today. Important truths get lodged in odd places and can be extricated from them - they may lie in 3rd century China, or in an aristocratic salon in 18th century Paris. What matters is what they can do for us now. The 60 chosen thinkers include La Rochefoucauld, Lao Tzu, Matsuo Basho, Alexis de Tocqueville, St Benedict, and many more.
