    About the author and book:
    William James Durant (1885 – 1981) was an American writer, historian, and philosopher. He is best known for The Story of Civilization, 11 volumes written in collaboration with his wife Ariel Durant and published between 1935 and 1975. He was earlier noted for The Story of Philosophy (1924), described as "a groundbreaking work that helped to popularize philosophy".

    He conceived of philosophy as total perspective, or, seeing things sub specie totius, a phrase inspired by Spinoza's sub specie aeternitatis. He sought to unify and humanize the great body of historical knowledge, which had grown voluminous and become fragmented into esoteric specialties, and to vitalize it for contemporary application.

    Will and Ariel Durant were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1968 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977.

    Winners of the Pulitzer Price, authors of The Lessons of History and the monumental eleven-volume The Story of Civilization, Will and Ariel Durant have condensed a life-time’s reading and thought into this brilliant, concise, and remarkably clearheaded appraisal of the philosophical content of twentieth-century literature. To the most influential and enduring novelists, poets and philosophers of our age, the Durants have applied their unique blend of analysis, synthesis and revealing biography—the qualities that have earned them a Pulitzer Price and an enduring place in American letters. The result is a book of depth, warmth and fascinating detail that will open to every reader the wonders and complexities of modern literature and trace the vital interrelationships between twentieth-century thought and twentieth-century life.
