In an age of conflicting intellectual trends, some philosophers have lost faith in the everyday relevance of philosophy; others have affirmed that reflection is crucial to authentic living. The limelight has been shared by existentialism, phenomenology, structuralism, and other movements. The question remains: what is the next great step in philosophy?
The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

Yeah, nowhere in the description does it list the philosophers who were gone over. I had to look at the tiny photo of the cover to get their names so I can look them up on WikiPedia.
I get the feeling that this series is just cranking out books without any real concern about how hard it is to comprehend.
