Good brief overview of key thought leaders in Philosophy and what their contributions were to the field. The 50 ideas series I find very informative for a general over view that then helps me to focus my future reading list and 50 Philosophy Ideas was up to the challenge.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This book is just a list of philosphy ideas, with very short descriptions of each. I suppose this might be useful for someone reviewing for a test, but as an audiobook it just has no purpose.

I have read good reviews about this book and so was eager to get stuck into it. I think what I was after were 50 ideas to comtemplate and bring to the typical dinner party for open debate.
You can do this with several of the ideas, but unfortunately, many of them are lost by the discussion put forward. For instance the idea on Wagners music was a great starting piece, and extremely thought provoking. Trouble is, no longer had the concept been introduced, but the debate digressed, and the key points you wanted the author to address were never touched upon. Maybe this was the intention.
Other ideas could be blown away with recent scientific discoveries not even considered by the author.

Would you listen to 50 Philosophy Ideas You Really Need To Know again? Why?
Probably yes. My education included most of these but with time you tend to forget what is not used.
Have you listened to any of Laurence Kennedy’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Good narration. I liked to listen to it.
