Do you want to look smart, but you do not have the time or motivation to read books about philosophy? Now you can!
Squashed Philosophers is a condensed version of all those magnificent philosophy books: it preserves the thoughts present in the books but removes any unnecessary readings. The removal can be up to 90% high, so a book that needed 10 hours reading time before can now be read in just 1 hour! The website has summaries for philosophers ranging from Plato to Alan Turing.
I personally recommend you reading Rene Descartes’ Meditations on First Philosophy, Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations, and Alan Turing’s Computing Machinery & Intelligence. If you browse further into the site, you can also find more summaries about those popular-but-you-never-read stories, such as Shakespeare’s works, Don Quixote, and the Bhagavad-Gita (the best part of Mahabharata, the most popular Indian epic).
The summaries are perfect in design. Two types of summary exist: the very condensed version, which is the most important message of the book (in only several paragraphs), and the condensed version, which is more like a real summary.
These books are innately very high in quality and they inspire millions of intellectuals around the world. Therefore, being able to read them in a minimum amount of time is a wonderful investment for your intelligence and knowledge.
