A PREFACE TO PHILOSOPHY, 9E prepares readers for the challenges of studying philosophy and writing philosophical essays. This classic textbook, in print for over thirty years, addresses such foundational topics as discerning philosophical questions, the purpose of philosophy, and the practice of doing philosophy. With its brief, accessible format and conversational writing style, A PREFACE TO PHILOSOPHY, 9E is a perfect compliment to a traditional Introduction to Philosophy textbook.

"This is an excellent "how to" tool for the first-time philosophy student, providing practical definitions and helpful exercises to ease the student into a difficult discipline."
"A very thought provoking (yet practical) book , which I think would help students get more out of any Philosophy class, especially upper division ones."
"A great introduction for potential majors in philosophy."
