9780130122674: Experiencing Philosophy

This useful and richly informative book will inspire and motivate readers to appreciate the importance and relevance of philosophy in their everyday lives. A user-friendly format provides detailed content coverage and critical reasoning skills development. Its “applied focus” pays attention to the personal and practical relevance of philosophy by focusing on its experiential, therapeutic, and social applications—complemented by a built-in study guide and substantial excerpts from classical original sourceworks. Six chapters cover: what philosophy is, philosophies of life, logic and philosophical method, epistemology and metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy. For individuals new to, and interested in, the study of philosphy.

From the Back Cover:

Anthony Falikowski pays serious attention in this new text to the personal and practical relevance of philosophy by focusing on its experiential, therapeutic, and social applications. The "applied focus," intended to inspire students to further their studies in philosophy, is complemented by a built-in study guide and substantial excerpts from classical original sources. By combining the theoretical with the practical through the integration of descriptive outlines, readings, and numerous pedagogical aids, this text strikes an educationally productive balance between accessibility and academic rigor.
