Offering a unique pedagogical apparatus, A Historical Introduction to Philosophy: Texts and Interactive Guides provides selections from the most influential primary works in philosophy from the Presocratics through the twentieth century, integrating them with substantial commentary and study questions. It offers extensive treatment of the Hellenistic and Renaissance periods--which are typically given only minimal coverage in other anthologies--and devotes substantial chapters to nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophy. The selections are organized historically and are presented in short and manageable sections with organizational headings and subheadings; archaic and difficult material has been adapted for clarity. Accompanying commentaries simplify difficult passages, explain technical terminology, and expand upon allusions to unfamiliar literature and arguments. Study questions are interspersed throughout the chapters in "Ask Yourself" boxes and vary with respect to format and level of difficulty. They require students to reconstruct arguments, summarize passages, complete blanks in statements and arguments, evaluate the success or viability of a philosophical point, or draw contemporary parallels and applications. The questions are carefully framed so as to avoid commitment to any particular side in controversies. Instructors can assign those questions that will best suit the aims of their courses and aid their students' comprehension of the primary source material. A Historical Introduction to Philosophy is enhanced by a comprehensive time line, a glossary, and lists of suggested further readings for both primary and secondary sources. This rich and flexible anthology and interactive textbook is ideal for introduction to philosophy and history of philosophy courses.

Review:

"By far the best introduction to philosophy I've encountered. It's comprehensive and on-topic, while the reading guides are an excellent means of leading introductory students through the text. First-rate."--Mark Weedman, Minnesota Bible College

"[With this book], students not only get a clear concept of various major philosophical systems, but they are also given the opportunity to read what various philosophers had to say. Students are bound to learn immensely from the way the book is structured."--Charles Mercieca, Alabama AandM
University

"Systematically presents the most popular primary works in philosophy from the Pre-Socratics through the twentieth century. The commentary and study guide questions are very helpful to both students and instructors."--Merigala Gabriel, Georgia Southern University

"Each historical period is given thorough treatment. The writing style draws students into dialogue with the material. The periodic study questions are extremely helpful."--S.N. Fratantaro, Providence College

"The texts have been carefully chosen. I was particularly pleased by the inclusion of Moses Maimonides, Martin Luther, and John Calvin, who are frequently overlooked. The scholarly remarks by the editors are easily accessible to students."--Lawrence C. Foard, Westfield State College
(Emeritus)
