Reading classics with “Squashed Philosophers”

Posted by Alexandre Rafalovitch on January 30, 2006

I have always wanted to read through the classics of the Western literature. But the life is too short and too busy to try slogging through the volumnous writings. Now, the “Squashed Philosophers” website (via StingyScholar) offers condenced versions of materials where only the important points are kept – in the original language – and the long rambles are excised.

And for those who don’t like reading from the screen, they have a printed version. I suspect this is done with the Print-on-Demand technology, also a good match for a book with uncertain sell-through expectations.
Great idea and it is certainly on my bookmarks now.

Alex.
