9780826490629: Introduction to Philosophical Problems

Joseph Margolis is an extremely rare kind of author - a renowned, world-class philosopher who is prepared to write accessibly for the non-specialist reader. Here Margolis introduces the reader to all of the central questions of Western philosophy, showing not only philosophical arguments progress but also how the most fundamental questions relate to each other. This lucid introduction enables the reader to experience a first-rate philosophical intelligence at work.

"I have tried to keep the issues clean and bare and to presuppose as little as possible in addressing the attentive reader. My intention is to attract readers, either in agreement or disagreement, either amateurs or professionals, to attend to the issues without the sort of scholarly paraphernalia that positively obscures arguments" - Joseph Margolis

About the Author:

Joseph Margolis is Laura H. Carnell Professor of Philosophy at Temple University. His most recent publications include Re-inventing Pragmatism (2002), The Unraveling fo Scientism (2003), Moral Philosophy after 9/11 (2004) and Introduction to Philosophical Problems (2006).

Review:

" Margolis (Temple Univ.) has organized this book around topics in three areas: epistemology, metaphysics and values. Believing that the central issue in philosophy is to elaborate a general account of knowledge, Margolis commences, in the first three chapters, with an analysis of knowledge and belief, perception and sensation and doubt and certainty... In addition since knowledge claims are expressible in language, Margolis further examines some key features of language, such as meaning, truth and intelligibility. Margolis undoubtedly has accomplished his aim in this book (a revised edition of his 1973 work Knowledge and Existence) — CHOICE February 2007
