Review quote

"This book, a welcome addition to a crowded field, is a lucid and wide--ranging introduction that will give students a very good sense of what philosophy is. Nuttall is particularly successful at integrating contemporary and historical sources, and he brings to his discussion both an enthusiasm and a lightness of touch." Nick Everitt, Department of Philosophy, University of East Anglia "Crisp, and written with exceptional clarity, this book will entice readers keen to explore the major issues debated in philosophy. Beginning with Descartes, Nuttall demonstrates a deep and wide--ranging understanding of the main questions in philosophy. The book will be valuable for those engaging with philosophy for the first time, including students studying it for AS-- and A--level. "K. T. Maslin, Head of Philosophy, Esher Sixth Form Collegeshow more
