Wow!

Concise, accessible, but not entry level, this is a fantastic resource for those interested in philosophy. It provides exceptional gateways to key thinkers and themes, getting through the key ideas, with useful metaphors, and compelling delivery. Can’t recommend it highly enough, have chucked in a few bucks on Patreon a couple of times already. Go Steve!
