Description

Philosophy: The Big Questions occupies a unique position among introductory texts in philosophy. Designed for a single-semester introductory course in philosophy, it includes both classic readings in philosophy and newer articles. The text is organized around central problems in philosophy and the diverse approaches that philosophers have taken toward those problems. Readers of this innovative and accessible volume will encounter canonical works in the history of philosophy, and at the same time see the relevance of philosophy to topics they have encountered in their everyday lives.
