Bryan Magee has had a many-sided career. In the 1960s and '70s, he worked in broadcasting as a current affairs reporter on ITV and a critic of the arts on BBC Radio 3. At one time he taught philosophy at Oxford, where he was a tutor at Balliol College. His best-remembered television programmes are two long series about philosophy: for the first he was awarded the Silver Medal of the Royal Television Society, while the book on which he based the second series on was a bestseller. From 1974 to 1983 he was Member of Parliament for Leyton, first as Labour, then as a Social Democrat and he is now a full-time author. Clouds of Glory, was awarded the J. R. Ackerley Prize for autobiography. He has also written several books on the history of philosophy. His books have been translated into more than twenty languages.Rezension:
