How to get the revolutionary philosophy book that helps understand Western thought and that has taken Spanish bookstores by storm

Philosophy is a fundamental basis for any person’s knowledge. It should be an essential pillar for societies, a meeting point with which to dialogue, reflect and discuss our past, present and future. Philosophy helps us understand the world and ourselves and, apart from the possible answers that we may find, it provides us with the most important thing of all, an infinite battery of questions that places us in different points of view, in different perspectives to see each other and see around us. Philosophy provides us with the questions with which human beings are enriched and evolve since their origins.

However, philosophy is not always accessible to all people and, even worse, many people believe that it is not for them because they are not going to learn anything or they think that it is not going to provide them with anything useful for their existence, for their day to day. Big mistake, nothing could be further from the truth. This is why pedagogy is so important to present and explain philosophy, a link that does not always happen and has enormous value. And when a philosophy book manages to reach a broader audience, readers appreciate it and interest is seen in the good sales it obtains.
