It's not a "good book" it's a GREAT book!!!!!!!!!!!
Will Durant was a brilliant scholar with a unique talent for capsulizing complex philosophic constructs. "Outline of Philosophy" was a popular book-club selection written for a high school level, general readership.
It's not the book you'd expect on the desk of an "original" philosopher of Hubbard's self-confessed caliber. It's little like discovering Julia Child working with the "Betty Crocker Cookbook."
To me, this is a very humorous photo!
There is an S extra Outlines He did acknowledge to have taken from philosophy and philosophy. At least in the Original Dianetics alsoo from Freud.
I first found the Photo hilarious too, than I thought he placed it there deliberatly as a must read or an acknowledgedment back in the old days?
I suspect he has read Maslow too
