Product description

Philosophy can often seem difficult and off-putting to the beginner, who can be intimidated by its jargon and confused by its subtlety of argument. The aim of this book is therefore to act as a no-nonsense guide for the student and general reader, clearly setting out the main arguments and ideas of six of philosophy's central topics in such a way that allows the reader to directly engage with them - for you to do philosophy for yourself. Philosophy: Key Themes looks at the theory of knowledge, moral philosophy, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, political philosophy, and aesthetics. Each section comes with its own further reading and glossary. This is the second edition of this popular text, and includes additional and updated material. You may also want to check out its companion volume, Philosophy: Key Texts, the second edition of which introduces six of philosophy's most influential texts.
