Core Questions in Philosophy: A Text with Readings
For introductory philosophy courses.
Presented in an engaging lecture-style format, this combined textbook-anthology leads students through a series of discussions on the basic issues and ideas in philosophy, with lectures supported by related readings from historically important sources. The discussions emphasize the logic of philosophical arguments; and, in particular, how they relate to the content of modern physical and social sciences. While the author's lecture approach lends this book a natural flow and sense of immediacy, it comprises a fully integrated textbook with all of the traditional organizational and pedagogical features, including chapter summaries, marginal notes, boxed inserts, discussion questions, problems, test questions, a glossary, and bibliography.

Interesting primary source readings "enabled" bu the general "overview" author's viewpoint, evidently designed for his own college teaching of his own 'Introduction to Philosophy' course at U Wisconsin-Madison. Read full review
