A superb book for dipping in and out of, this makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in history or philosophy.

Born in Ohio, Ambrose Bierce (1842 – 1914) went on to write one of the greatest American novels of all time, ‘The Devil’s Dictionary.’ Sigmund Freud (1856 – 1939) was an Austrian neurologist who founded the science of psychoanalysis. A Romanian, Emil Cioran (1911-1995) was an acclaimed philosopher who embraced nihilism and pessimism in his ideology.

One of the founders of analytical psychology, Carl Jung (1875 – 1961) was a Swiss psychoanalyst and psychologist who had a huge impact on psychology as a science. Gaston Bachelard (1884 – 1962) was born in Bar-sur-Aube and went on to become an important scientific philosopher.
