A great deal of the satisfaction of studying philosophy lies in exploring its landmark arguments. Working from this premise,Great Philosophical Arguments: An Introduction to Philosophyfocuses on the debates that define and drive the field. Editor Lewis Vaughn presents seventy-eight readings--both classic selections and contemporary works--that are topically organized into six chapters: the existence of God, knowledge and skepticism, mind and body, free will and determinism, ethics, and contemporary ethical debates. The readings are grouped by argument into pro/con dialogues within each chapter. Each of the thirty-four arguments is introduced with a brief outline, which is followed by two to four essays presenting the classic statement of the argument, critiques and defenses of it, and discussions of related debates. FEATURES: * A substantial introductory chapter and extensive chapter introductions * Essay questions at the end of each argument section and chapter * Pedagogical features including boldfaced key terms, biographical text boxes, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary * An appendix on how to read and write argumentative essays * AnInstructor's Manual and Test Bank on CDfeaturing chapter summaries, reading summaries, PowerPoint-based lecture outlines, and test questions * ACompanion Website at study questions, interactive quizzes, flashcards, and helpful links
