In this collection of brief lives--and deaths--of nearly two hundred of the world's greatest thinkers, noted philosopher Simon Critchley creates a register of mortality that is tragic, amusing, absurd, and exemplary. From the self-mocking haikus of Zen masters on their deathbeds to the last words of Christian saints and modern-day sages, this irresistible book contains much to inspire both amusement and reflection.--From publisher description.

A fun approach to the grand tour of who's who in philosophy. Painlessly enriching.
