“Telling the history of philosophy is an arduous and exciting task. First, because each author has left his personal signature when transmitting his ideas. And, second, because the historian adds a story of his own to the evolution of philosophical ideas.
The best history of philosophy would be the sum of each essay, letter, treatise, novel, poem, dialogue, confession, used by the authors to wrap their ideas and share them with the public. But, since this is not possible, why not write the history of philosophical ideas with the style of one who faces such a challenge?
This has been my choice to tell in this very personal way, the life and miracles of this bunch of thinkers of all times. I would be satisfied if with this book I can contribute, even minimally, to a broader public approach to philosophy, because we are all a little philosophers and it is precisely the thought that makes us equal and makes us authentically human, … authentically free”.
