From Lao Tsu, Aristotle, and Ibn Khaldun to Charles Darwin, Jomo Kenyatta, and Aung San Suu Kyi, Reading the World: Ideas That Matter is a collection of writing by some of the world's great thinkers. And because ideas have long been expressed visually as well as verbally, the collection also includes drawings, paintings, photographs, and other visual works. Organized around the universal themes of Human Nature; Law and Government; War and Peace; Wealth, Poverty, and Social Class; Science and Nature; Education; and Language and Rhetoric, the texts in this book present a diversity of views on ideas that matter.
