Nigel Warburton's Philosophy: The Classics is a clear and concise introduction to twenty of the great works of Western Philosophy, a glossary and suggestions for further reading are included to make it ideal as a starting point for any further study of philosophy. From Plato's Republic to Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations, it explains the most important features of each classic in a way that doesn't assume any previous knowledge of philosophy.
In his best-selling earlier book, Philosophy: The Basics, Nigel Warbuton covered areas and key arguments in contemporary philosophy. In Philosophy: The Classics, he covers the history and key writings in philosophy. The books together give us a comprehensive and clear introduction to philosophy past and present.
