    1. This is an excellent work of the history of philosophy with a focus on the major philosophers down through time. For a survey work like this, it is a bit dry and once I moved beyond the early Greeks the reading did seem to slow down quite a bit. Clark brings his Evangelical perspective to his work and while I think often his critiques would be unconvincing to a non-Christian, it is still good to see how a Christian would view and understand various philosophies and he does not cross the line int [...]

    2. If you don't follow Clark's philosophy, most of his critiques against competing systems of thought falter pretty quickly. While he does make some valid criticisms, if you think one can gain knowledge through inductive means, sense perception, or common sense, then you're likely to dismiss much of his criticisms of non-Christian thought as unhelpful. You're also likely to dismiss may of his criticisms of Natural Theology in the same way. If you are a Clarkian, then you're probably sure to love th [...]

    3. At the moment, I'm actually just skimming through certain early philosophers. The Greeks fascinate me in a way that most later philosophers simply don't. Not sure why.This book was my father's college Intro to Philosophy course book. When I was 17 and interested in attending St. John's College (which teaches via its Great Books program), he gave me this to read to see if I was ready for something like that. I never finished the book because I would get sidetracked into reading some of the origin [...]

    4. This book is cited in a lot of shorter history of philosophy books, and I've found it to be helpful to have a history of philosophy written by a Christian philosopher. But so far, the reading has been a little tedious (yes, even for a "history of philosophy"). Clark is a great teacher, and I appreciate what he has to say. In this book though he seems to take a long time to say one thing - to the point that I get lost in the argument. Of course, that very well could be my own deficiency as a read [...]
