Description

This introduction to philosophy combines the two approaches most commonly employed to teach philosophy to college freshmen - the problems approach and the historical approach. It includes chapters on the major problems or questions in philosophy - what we can know, what exists, the mind-body problem, the existence of God, what is moral, etc. - and it addresses these problems by focusing each chapter on a particular text by a major philosopher.show more
