Peter Kreeft, esteemed philosophy professor and author of over eighty books, has taught college philosophy for sixty years. Throughout those decades, he yearned for a beginner's philosophy text that was clear, accessible, enjoyable, and exciting (perhaps even funny). Finding none that met those criteria, he eventually decided to write it himself.

In this special edition four-volume box set, Kreeft delivers, with his characteristic wit and clarity, an introduction to philosophy via the hundred greatest philosophers of all time. Socrates' Children examines the big ideas of four major eras--ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary--and immerses the reader in the "great conversation," the ongoing dialogue among the great thinkers of history, including the most influential philosopher of all: Socrates, the father of Western philosophy.

Dr. Peter Kreeft is Professor of Philosophy at Boston College and the author of almost one hundred books. His many bestsellers cover a vast array of topics in spirituality, theology, and philosophy. They include Making Sense of Suffering, Because God Is Real, Angels and Demons, Heaven: The Heart's Deepest Longing, Summa of the Summa, Christianity for Modern Pagans, and How to Destroy Western Civilization.
