Summary

Ideal for introductory philosophy courses that take a topical, problem-oriented approach, this anthology offers an in-depth exploration of the five main branches of philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology, morality, politics, and aesthetics. Considerations of these branches are anchored by readings from Plato and expanded through thoughtfully edited historical and contemporary pieces by a wide range of thinkers, inviting students to become active participants in the philosophical tradition.


Key Features:

* An issues-based approach features a broad representation of past and current readings chosen and edited to compare perspectives on philosophical issues over time

* A Comprehensive selection of readings includes canonical philosophical works along with a selection of non-philosophical writings that offer unique viewpoints on key problems

* Diverse perspectives, including readings from non-Western, Canadian, and female authors, provide students with a variety of viewpoints

* Classroom-tested content ensures that the level of each selection is suited to introductory philosophy students

* Author headnotes provide biographical context for the readings
