Introduction to Philosophy is the best introductory philosophy text of its kind. It is well organized and the readings are thoughtfully selected and edited for the audience. Furthermore, the book's editors do an excellent job of providing commentary and questions for students. I find the introductions to be exceptionally clear and very helpful for my students when they are trying to figure out how to approach the readings. ( Tracie Mahaffey, Florida State University)
This is my first choice in introductory anthologies; it's better than the Feinberg/Shafer-Landau. This edition is one of the best introductory textbooks on the market. It has coverage of important topics and positions and a clear and helpful structure. ( Eugene Marshall, Wellesley College)
I am pleased to see the addition of several works by female authors. That is certainly a positive change. In addition, the organization is excellent and one of the book's great strengths. ( Shane Gronholz, University of Colorado Boulder)
This introduction to philosophy provides instructors with unparalleled latitude in designing their courses. The book includes both historical and contemporary readings in all areas of philosophy including metaphysics, epistemology, logic, ethics, and political philosophy. It also includes important readings by female philosophers, something that is sadly lacking in most other introductory texts. ( Aleksandar Pjevalica, The University of Texas at El Paso)
Introduction to Philosophy has sections on most of the central topics in philosophy, making it adaptable to almost any topical introduction to the field. It has a good selection of classical texts on each topic, and, for some topics, a nice sampling of more contemporary literature. ( Louise Antony, University of Massachusetts Amherst)
Introduce your students to philosophy with the most widely used, trusted, and comprehensive topically organized collection of classical and contemporary readings available.
Easy to use for both students and instructors, Introduction to Philosophy: Classical and Contemporary Readings incorporates boldfaced key terms (listed after each reading and defined in the glossary), a "Logical Toolkit," and a guide to writing philosophy papers.
The seventh edition features eleven new readings, including eight by contemporary women philosophers, bringing the total number of essays by women to twelve. It is also accompanied by a robust support package that includes a more extensive test bank, available on the new online Ancillary Resource Center, and expanded self-quizzes for students on the Companion Website.
