The Philosopher's Way: Thinking Critically About Profound Ideas, 3/e, inspires students to think like a philosopher. Integrated readings, interspersed with commentary, guide students in their understanding of the topics, while critical thinking activities challenge students to go beyond their reading and explore the connections philosophy has on their everyday lives.

This is an intelligently planned and well done introduction to philosophy for college students. The selection of philosophers and schools is very wide, and Chaffee's commentaries are exactly to the mark for textbook's audience. Chaffee introduces students to steps and activities towards critical thinking about the philosophical issues in the readings, and there are guides and examples for students' own critical thinking and writing throughout the textbook.

Full-color visuals bring topics to life, and writing examples give students a foundation for their own philosophical exploration.
