Full description for The Giants of Philosophy
Plato, the first great philosopher of the West, thought that existing things are modeled on changeless, eternal forms. To Plato, human beings consist of an immortal soul and a mortal body; the soul has a love for the eternal, the good, the true, and the beautiful; these give life purpose, stability and meaning. Scripted by Professor Berel Lang, State University of New York at Albany.Aristotle, in revising Plato's ideas, thought human beings are one with the rest of nature, yet set apart from it by their ability to reason. He was the first to systematically describe physics, biology, psychology, and the standards of literature. Scripted by Professor Thomas C. Brickhouse, Lynchburg College.Expertly narrated by Charlton Heston -- especially renowned for his roles in historical films -- "The Giants Of Philosophy" is an illuminating look at two of the most significant thinkers of our time.
