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 philosophers--Rousseau, 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.
