Squashed Philosophers is not cliffnotes. Rather, Glyn Hughes uncovers the brilliant ideas buried deep in thick tomes through skillful editting. The current list contains dozens of classic works from Plato to Sartre. Alongside the entries are pie charts showing the estimated time (05-60 minutes) needed to read each abridgment. Although some key philosophers are missing, Squashed Philosphers kindly includes a link to Google's philosophy online texts directory. For more philosophy resources, try EpistemeLinks. Glyn Hughes has also started a series of Squashed Writers and Squashed Divines.
