Philosophical Problems: An Annotated Anthology
Second Edition

Laurence BonJour
Ann Baker

Edited and assembled by one of philosophy's foremost scholars, in collaboration with a distinguished teacher, this introductory anthology offers both classic and contemporary primary source readings and schools students in developing distinctly philosophical habits of mind.

In addition to the fine selection of primary source readings, this anthology offers a unique array of pedagogical features that, together, form a “roadmap” for thinking philosophically. These features begin with an introductory essay, followed by chapter introductions and annotations that accompany the readings, and conclude with discussion questions and an appendix on writing about philosophy.

New Features to the Second Edition

  • Annotations now appear in the margins of the text, and are clearly distinguished and classified into several categories according to their purpose, including: stop-and-think, definition/concept, and outside comment from the text’s editors.
  • A chapter-ending feature–Concluding Dialogue–picks up where the outside comment annotations leave off. Each presents a dialogue between the editors of the book, summarizing the primary concepts in the chapter, modeling philosophical thinking, and demonstrating the dialectical nature of philosophical inquiry.
  • The chapter and selection introductions, annotations, and discussion questions have all been thoroughly reconsidered and substantially revised, and readings have been replaced or re-edited to create manageable yet comprehensive reading assignments.
  • A larger trim size and a two color design present a clearer, more student-friendly and accessible layout.

New Readings to the Second Edition

  • Sextus Empiricus: From Outlines of Pyrrhonism
  • Harry Frankfurt: Freedom of the Will and the Concept of a Person
  • Robert Kane: Free Will and Modern Science, from A Contemporary Introduction to Free Will
  • Peter Singer: Famine, Affluence, and Morality
  • Rosalind Hursthouse: Virtue Theory and Abortion
  • St. Anselm: The Ontological Argument, from Proslogion
