Review:

"Excellent. I'm impressed by this as by the companion book on Sartre. At last a Philosophy book with both accessibility and detail and useful exercises!" -- Mr R Ellis, Worcester Sixth Form College 20040501 [About Philosophy in Focus Series] Each book provides a measured analysis of its respective subject area. Although the reader is not overloaded with information, each topic is covered at a level of detail which does justice to the philosophical ideas at issue...The layout of the books facilitates reading, and a novel feature which is likely to appeal to AS/A2 students is the provision of activity and "experimenting with ideas" sections throughout each book. ... The overall effect is to produce three engaging texts which are enjoyable and informative to read. The authors are clearly not arguing for particular philosophical positions in relation to the topics covered in these three books, but seeking rather to provide the reader with sufficient material to be able to think about the topics in constructive and rewarding ways.
