Capturing the inimitable enthusiasm of Louis Pojman's much acclaimed teaching, PHILOSOPHY: THE PURSUIT OF WISDOM introduces students to all of the core topics in philosophy. Beginning with an inquiry into the nature and purpose of philosophy, this text moves through many traditional discussions?such as the existence of God, the problems of knowledge, the freewill/determinism debate, and the foundations of ethics?and concludes with an exploration into existentialism and the meaning of life.
