Using a topics-and-positions approach in a handbook format, this text presents each major topic in philosophy through a succinct, relevant, and readable presentation, followed by critique of the representative positions (e.g., schools of thought, individual philosophers) within each topic. Used independently or as a core text to prime students for critical engagements with primary sources, the book?s illustrated continuums help students compare various philosophical standpoints as they seek to engage in a variety of basic philosophical questions. Positions found on the continuum are explicated and then followed by a case study drawn from contemporary life that helps students to apply what they?ve learned.
