Sawyer is an established author on philosophy and ethics in the reformed theological tradition. In this two-part series Dr. Sawyer aims to produce an introduction to western philosophy in dialogue with theology. The volume under review takes the reader from the Pre-Socratics to Aquinas, while volume two will move from the Renaissance through the Enlightenment to postmodern times. The history of philosophy is painted with a broad brush, the brush being the relationship between philosophy and the Christian faith. The publication finds its roots in the author's notes to students challenging them "to think about the history of philosophy and to see some of the actuality of philosophical themes" (p. 5).
