Time to philosophize

The final work of historian and philosopher Will Durant, a Pulitzer Prize winner, was published more than 30 years after his death. Fallen Leaves contains some of his best thinking, including his writing on religion, war, politics, and art. Our latest release distills some of his most important ideas.

The past influences the present, and so it is, in a sense, alive. We can only make sense of the contemporary world by understanding how we got here.
