    Is a guide to the study of philosophy. It intends to provide beginners a brief source of philosophers’ life story and philosophical endeavors from Thales to Sartre and a progressive bird’s eye view of the development of philosophy from Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, until the Modern Period and the rise of Existentialism during the Contemporary Period. It will also serve as a self-help guide for philosophy enthusiasts, non-philosophy majors, and curious ordinary people who want to know about what philosophy does. As a help for beginners, the book features its thematic guide for those who are not convenient in using a historical approach. It also features its do-it-yourself set of questions, activities, and brain teasers aimed at facilitating one’s understanding of the philosophical enterprise.
