Brief overview of modern philosophy?

Recommended Posts

We've been working on world history this year and have made it around the world and back into modern Europe.  Lately we've been doing little mini-units on different topics and I'd like to spend a few days introducing some of the more famous philosophers of the 18th-20th century.    I'm looking for something really, really light just to get a taste of some names and ideas. Do you know of a video or website or book or activity that could be interesting?  I don't have time to dedicate more than a few hours to the topic. 


I should add -- she read Sophie's World earlier this year -- though that is sort of what I'm looking for in terms of accessibility and lightness.
