Peter Hicks' The Journey So Far
presents the history of philosophy for lay readers, college students, and professional clergy in accessible language and a navigable format.
It offers a chronological approach to philosophical issues while examining them from a Christian perspective. Hicks presupposes no previous study of philosophy. The focus is primarily on Western philosophy, but it touches on Eastern and non-European (such as African) thought where relevant.
These qualities make Peter Hicks' book an excellent reference work, or study companion for non-specialized philosophers who wish to understand the basic intellectual principles that have steered thought since before the time of Christ. We do not often recognize how philosophy affects our daily lives, and The Journey So Far
is a sure remedy.
