About the Author:

Gary E. Kessler received his Ph.D. from Columbia University where he studied philosophy and comparative religions. After teaching at Bard College, he accepted a position at California State University, Bakersfield where he taught for over thirty years. His most recent research centers on religion and violence. He is the author of numerous articles and books, including VOICES OF WISDOM, which, when first published in 1992, was the first multicultural textbook and reader intended for use in an introductory philosophy class.

Review:

"I have used Voices of Wisdom to teach introductory courses in philosophy since 1997. I am thrilled with Kessler's handling of the material. He presents the basic philosophical concepts in a way that is easy to understand, and quick to engage. The articles that are presented do an excellent job of representing a cross-selection of philosophical work from around the world and throughout the ages."

"Gary Kessler's Voices of Wisdom: A Multicultural Philosophy Reader is an excellent introductory textbook for instructors who want important selections from the Western and Eastern canons as well as readings from important figures writing on contemporary philosophical issues. The text strikes an important balance by including figures vital to the history of philosophy as well as voices too often neglected in philosophy classes."
