I was reading in the recent past the multivolume History of Philosophy of F.Copleston.
It is essentially the only interesting history of philosophy (along with the multivolume Routhledge History of Philosophy) for someone who has already an overview of the major philosophers since because of it length it elaborates a bit more than shorter books of history of philosophy like the one of B. Russell.
However, my problem with even this kind of history of philosophy is that it is presented in a too chronological way. The philosophers who are presented in the books are primarily related in terms of their chronological succession and not so much by their philosophical proximity.
In other words, is there any history of philosophy book which is not so much a genealogical tree of the philosophers (and hence chronological primarily in terms of the philosophers ) but which is a genealogical tree of the philosophical arguments (and hence thematic in terms of the philosophical questions and answers)?
Therefore, I want to have an overview of the history of philosophy as a genealogical tree where the roots are (let's say) 20 fundamental questions and then from each of these there are separate branches and leaves which represent the subsequent questions which arise from these fundamental questions and the answers of the philosophers who attempted to answer them etc.
