Review:

‘This book is ridiculously comprehensive’ - Ross Cameron, University of Virginia, USA

‘There is no question that this is an extremely useful teaching resource for academics’ - Graham Stevens, University of Manchester, UK

‘What a wonderful idea for a book! Fisher and Tallant clearly and compellingly lay out the various pedagogical options, each innovative and plausible. This book would be extraordinarily helpful to early-career instructors who are preparing their first curricula.’- Kevin DeLapp, Converse College, USA

‘This project reflects a very compelling idea. Here finally is a book aimed at encouraging a wide range of students to participate in philosophical conversations and to learn philosophy by doing so – an aim I applaud.’ - Andrew Janiak, Duke University, USA
