520 1  "Through network diagrams and sustained narrative, Randall
       Collins traces the development of philosophical thought in
       China, Japan, India, ancient Greece, the medieval Islamic 
       and Jewish world, medieval Christendom, and modern Europe.
       What emerges from this history is a general theory of 
       intellectual life, one that avoids both the reduction of 
       ideas to the influences of society at large and the purely
       contingent local construction of meanings. Instead, 
       Collins focuses on the social locations where 
       sophisticated ideas are formed: the patterns of 
       intellectual networks and their inner divisions and 
       conflicts. According to his theory, when the material 
       bases of intellectual life shift with the rise and fall of
       religions, educational systems, and publishing markets, 
       opportunities open for some networks to expand while 
       others shrink and close down. It locates individuals - 
       among them celebrated thinkers like Socrates, Aristotle, 
       Chu Hsi, Shankara, Wirt Henstein, and Heidegger - within 
       these networks and explains the emotional and symbolic 
       processes that, by forming coalitions within the mind, 
       ultimately bring about original and historically 
       successful ideas."--Jacket.
