This text contains twenty-five important selections that help students answer the question: "What is philosophy?" It explores the nature of philosophy, focusing on what philosophy is and how it compares to other disciplines in the humanities and the sciences. The selections examine philosophy from a variety of philosophical standpoints and are organized into four categories: Pragmatism (Part I), Anglo-American Philosophy (Part II), Continental Philosophy (Part Ill), and Prospects for Philosophy (Part IV). Selections by such diverse 20th century philosophers as John Dewey, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Karl Popper, Martin Heidegger, Michel Foucault, and Hilary Putnam provide students with a wide range of works from the main movements in contemporary philosophy. None of the selections is technical or formal in approach; so the text is suitable for a variety of courses.About the Author:
