Nonetheless, in spite of the book’s title, I don’t believe that most people will have attempted a philosophy course at school, so they have not even had an opportunity to forget this material, as they were never exposed to these ideas in the first place. This book and others of a similar ilk, allow the reader to see a wide sweep of history, combined with the major philosophical ideas current in those periods. The book is a worthwhile read and allows the reader to expand their overall knowledge of some aspects of philosophy.

This book goes beyond what we learned in high school or even college! Just a great read!

Great summaries to refresh you memory or give you a brief overview of major voices and arguments in philosophy.

Before you go to your high school reunion, you'll want to review your yearbook just to refresh yourself as to who is who. Levene's little volume does that for you with the philosophers! There will be several where she shares nothing you don't still remember, but most will have stuff you forgot that will jog your mind, and still others will turn up you never met the first go round! The chapters are rather superficial and fun (if you were really serious, you'd fish out Bertrand Russell, or may your Copleston set!); they follow the idea that the dominant ideas of the thinkers have something to do with or find expression in their personalities. One clue to the character of the book is the drawings that accompany each chapter (like I say, rather superficial and fun). I read this to relax in the evenings, and I might read it to my grandson as an introduction to personalities to recognize in his future reading (at least I HOPE they will include philosophers in his education!). It is a Reader's Digest book, after all, which fills a needed niche in the reading world and does more to encourage reading than laziness.

Review of I Used to Know That: Philosophy: Stuff You Forgot from School by Lesley Levene

CITATION: Levene, L. (2011). I Used to Know That: Philosophy: Stuff You Forgot from School. New York, Montreal: Reader's Digest Association, Incorporated.

Reviewer: Dr William P. Palmer

If a book attempts to condense some 4000 years of philosophical thought from all parts of the world into a mere 175 pages, then it attempts an impossible task. So, do not expect too much! Most of the philosophers mentioned wrote several lengthy tomes, so the ideas of each are greatly simplified. There are also silly jokes and inaccuracies which will put off some readers. Of course, others will appreciate the light tone of the book.

Nonetheless, in spite of the book’s title, I don’t believe that most people will have attempted a philosophy course at school, so they have not even had an opportunity to forget this material, as they were never exposed to these ideas in the first place. This book and others of a similar ilk, allow the reader to see a wide sweep of history, combined with the major philosophical ideas current in those periods. The book is a worthwhile read and allows the reader to expand their overall knowledge of some aspects of philosophy. For particular philosophies where the reader wants more information, he or she may read other more detailed works about that philosophy.

A brief note before you purchase this book: The book and its contents otherwise known as "I Used to Know That Philosophy: Stuff You Forgot from School," has also been published under a different title: "I Think Therefore I Am." They are one and the same.

Is this a case of plagiarism? or perhaps a dirty marketing ploy? Either way, don't be caught unawares and purchase the same book twice.
