ROOTS OF WISDOM, Seventh Edition, invites readers to explore universal and current philosophical issues through a rich tapestry of perspectives including the ideas and traditions of men and women from the West, Asia, the Americas, and Africa. No other book offers such breadth of multicultural coverage coupled with a clear, concise, and approachable writing style. The author presents striking images to illustrate our diverse cultural inheritance, using fine art, cartoons, poetry, movies, current events, and popular music to bring the issues of philosophy to life. This edition includes a new discussion of "logos" and "mythos" as laid out by Karen Armstrong, material on calculative vs. meditative thinking from Heidegger, expanded treatment of sovereignty and citizenship with new discussion on the so-called "Arab Spring," and more.

Review:

"It's an excellent introduction to a wide range of topics in world philosophical though--more material than you could use in a term and better because of it."
