Summary
'The greatest souls are capable of the greatest vices as well as the greatest virtues.' This book shows that philosphers' own behaviour, sometimes bad, sometimes sad, occasionally downright mad, is seldom entirely unconnected with their thinking.
Biographical or historical data
Nigel Rodgers is a historian and author of several publications, most recently "The Rise and Fall of Ancient Rome" as well as biographies of Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill.

Summary expansion
An engaging and often hilarious survey of the far-from-fusty extra-curricular activities of some of philosophy s finest practitioners"Philosophers Behaving Badly" examines the lives of eight great philosophersRousseau, whose views on education and the social order seem curiously at odds with his own outrageous life; Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, two giants of the 19th century whose words seem ever more relevant today; and five immensely influential philosophers of the 20th century, Russell, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Sartre, and Foucault."
