    DescriptionPhilosophy: The Essential Study Guide is a compact and straightforward guide to the skills needed to study philosophy, aimed at anyone coming to the subject for the first time or just looking to improve their performance.

    Review quote
    'Just what is needed. It is written in an easy style that makes it eminently clear and accessible to its intended audience ... Drawing on my four decades of university teaching I don't think I could improve on the advice given.' - Michael Clark, University of Nottingham
