The new anthology by Jack Bowen, author of The Dream Weaver, introduces the important issues and thinkers in philosophy with a strong, academic approach made accessible and relevant to the introductory-level student. The readings include many of the most well-known historical pieces as well as contemporary ethical issues presented in a debate-style format.
To balance the rigorous nature of the readings, the book’s introductions, author biographies, discussion questions, and the involvement of the companion book, The Dream Weaver, provide a welcoming atmosphere for students new to philosophy, sparking interest, assessing comprehension, and stimulating discussion.
