In 1956, Melvin M. Rader started a tradition of exploring life's "enduring questions" via classic and contemporary philosophical readings. Jerry Gill upholds this tradition in the sixth edition of this respected introductory text that addresses such fundamental concepts of philosophy as rationalism, idealism, and the social contract. Features: * Each chapter begins with an appropriate question, as well as a summary of the key issues and ideas involved, and concludes with a bibliogrphy for further reading.
