9780195112047: Introduction to Philosophy: Classical and Contemporary Readings

Introduction to Philosophy, 3/e is the most comprehensive topically organized collection of classical and contemporary philosophy available. Ideal for introductory philosophy courses, the third edition of this classic text now includes a general introduction and features eighteen selections new to this volume and an expanded glossary of philosophical terms. A serious and challenging work, it includes sections on the meaning of life, God and evil, epistemology, philosophy of science, the mind/body problem, freedom of will, consciousness, ethics, and philosophical puzzles. This exceptionally successful anthology presents a large number of substantial--and in some cases complete--selections from major works, offering a unique balance between classical and contemporary readings.
This third edition adds selections by Plato, Nelson Pike, J.L. Mackie, Elizabeth Anderson, David Lewis, Hilary Putnam, Frank Jackson, John Perry, Peter Strawson, Rosalind Hursthouse, G.A. Cohen, Samuel Scheffler, Debra Satz, and Kwame Anthony Appiah as well as Kavka's Toxin Puzzle and Quinn's Puzzle of the Self-Torturer.

"Excellent selections and organization."--Gerald N. Callahan, Colorado State University

"An excellent, comprehensive, well-balanced collection."--David Detmer, Purdue University-Calumet

"This book is a distillation of much of the best I was required to read and master as an undergradaute at UCLA in the mid-1980s. I would unhesitatingly adopt it."--Lawrence Fike, California State University-Fullerton

"I've used the second edition for three semesters....[T]he readings are representative of some of the best philosophy has to offer."--Mary F.L. Stevenson, University of Colorado at Denver

Praise for the previous edition: "The best anthology of philosophical works for a general introduction to philosophy. It combines a perfect mix of classic and contemporary sources, and the major areas of philosophy are represented. It is great to finally have one book that does it all."--James M. Hughes, University of South Carolina
