Symposia is a reader for courses in Philosophy and Ethics. This exciting new custom publication gives instructors the opportunity to choose from an archive of more than 200 readings grouped under topic areas, while creating a customized reader that exactly matches their course content and teaching approach. Developed under the editorial direction of the Department of Philosophy at Ohio University, each of the topic areas include: A general introduction to the topic (written by the philosopher responsible for editing the readings for that topic in Symposia); A selection of readings (edited for their utility in studying the topic), including both primary and secondary sources; For each reading, an opening brief headnote written by the editor, and study questions to spark classroom discussion or further reading; and A glossary of key terms. Symposia offers all the benefits of traditional readers—quality scholarship and exceptional source materials—with two key advantages. The first is the much greater breadth and variety of readings that the Symposia database format allows. Rather than limit professors to the 50-70 readings found in even the most extensive philosophy readers, Symposia offers 3-4 times as many articles from which to choose. Even more importantly, each professor is able to tailor the contents of their reader specifically to the needs of his or her own course. And students are not obliged to pay for readings that may or may not be assigned. The professor has the freedom to put together the book she wants, with the philosophy readings she wants, in the order she wants them to appear, and at the price she wants students to pay, simply by filling out a printed order form and faxing it to Pearson Custom Publishing. PCP compiles the book, adds a custom title page and table of contents, and ships the bound books directly to the school bookstore within 4-6 more
