The author describes common philosophies in an entertaining way. Here’s an expert from one of his more popular posts “Plato’s ‘The Allegory of the Cave’: A Summary”:

Socrates: “Why do people think philosophy is bullshit? Let me put it this way – imagine you’re in a cave, all chained up so you can’t turn your body at all, and all you get to look at is this one wall. Some assholes behind you are making shadow puppets using the light from a fire and making echo noises and that’s all you or anyone else chained up has seen or heard all your life. Sounds terrible, right? Except it’s all you’ve ever known, shadows and echoes, and that’s your whole world – there’s no way you could know that, really, you’re watching a slightly-improved M. Night Shyamalan film.

While I wouldn’t use his summaries to study for a philosophy exam, I would read them for a surface level understanding and for fun.
