1 Review
Presented in a lecture-style format, this combined textbook-anthology leads students through a series of discussions on the basic issues and ideas in philosophy. The lectures are supported by related readings from historically important sources. Most of the lectures also contain boxed material highlighting key concepts or related topics. The discussions emphasize the logic of philosophical arguments - and in particular, how they relate to the content of scientific theories such as evolution.

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
