The Big Ideas Box (Paperback)
Perfect for the teen (or adult) that loves to learn. As a kid obsessed with atlases, science, and National Geographic magazines, this is exactly the type of thing I would have loved to have. —Kendall— From A Comprehensive Guide of Brilliant Gifts
Delve deeper into what makes us tick with three top-selling titles from the Big Ideas Simply Explained series: The Philosophy Book, The Psychology Book, and The Sociology Book.
Explore feminism, rationalism, idealism, existentialism, and other influential movements with The Philosophy Book, which unpacks the ideas of more than 100 of history's celebrated philosophers. The Psychology Book looks at the biggest names in psychology, including William James, Sigmund Freud, and Ivan Pavlov, and unpacks each psychologist's contribution to our understanding of how the mind works. The Sociology Book profiles the world's most renowned sociologists and more than 100 of their biggest ideas, from equality, diversity, identity, and human rights, to globalisation, the role of institutions, and the rise of urban living in modern society.
Ideal for teenagers, each book uses innovative graphics and creative typography to help you understand the key principles behind these foundational social sciences. So if you seek to understand how people think and interact with the world around them, The Big Ideas Box is a good place to start.
