Coplsteon's work sought provides a detailed, and by consensus fair, treatment of the major philosophers and their ideas from the Pre-Socratics all the way up to Levi-Strauss. He skillfully avoids simplistic caricatures and his narrative sparkles with incident and intellectual excitement giving each philosopher a full hearing with erudition, attention to style, while illuminating each figure has to those who came before and to those who came after.
Nevertheless Copleston, who is well known for his public debates and resounding defenses for the existence of God, never hides his own perspectives--but he also does not use it to truncate or distort others' views. Thus, Copleston's work is remarkably well-rounded, complete, and scholarly. Though originally intended for students, Copleston's work is a staple work for any library; especially those who wish to learn about and engage philosophical questions in an informed manner.

Q: I am interested in the set History of Philosophy by Copleston. The order no. is AF00656. My question is this: Are the bindings of the individual volumes Smyth-Sewn? Thanks, Dan.
No, the binding on these books are not specifically Smyth-Sewn. The binding appears to be a lesser quality sewn/ glued combination, which enables the books to lay flat to a certain degree and is better than a typical hardcover binding.
