9780415157933: An Introduction to Philosophical Analysis

John Hospers' Introduction to Philosophical Analysis has sold over 150,000 copies since its first publication. This new edition ensures that its success will continue into the twenty-first century. It remains the most accessible and authoritative introduction to philosophy available using the full power of the problem-based approach to the area to ensure that philosophy is not simply taught to students but practised by them.
The most significant change to this edition is to respond to criticisms regarding the omission in the third edition of the famous opening chapter. A brand new chapter, Words and the World, replaces this in the fourth edition - which now features a large number of examples and illustrative dialogues. The rest of the text has been thoroughly revised and updated to take account of recent developments in some areas of philosophy.

From the Publisher:

This text provides an in-depth, problem-oriented introduction to philosophical analysis using an extremely clear, readable approach. The Fourth Edition only updates coverage throughout the book, but also restores the introductory chapter--Words and the World--the most distinguished, widely acclaimed feature of the first two editions.

Review:

'Anyone who wishes to familiarize himself with the methods and approaches to philosophy current in universities in England and the United States will find this book a useful guide.' - Philosophical Studies

'This is quite simply the best introductory philosophy book there is.' - Stephen Priest, University of Edinburgh
