Does anyone know a good comprehensive book that covers the most famous philosophers and explains their main concepts in chronological order? I am interested in empiricism vs. rationalism debate, but I would like to get a holistic picture of the subject of philosophy, starting from the Greeks and up to the Wittgensteins of the 20th century.
Many thanks in advance!

I haven't read it so I can't vouch for it specifically, but you might want to try Nigel Warburton's A Little History of Philosophy. He's generally reliable and a good read. The book covers philosophy from the Greeks to the 20th century, and - unlike most histories - includes a fair bit on very recent work.
