Andrew Bailey’s highly-regarded introductory anthology has been revised and updated in this new concise edition. Mindful of the intrinsic difficulty of the material, the editors provide comprehensive introductions both to each topic and to each individual selection. By presenting a detailed discussion of the historical and intellectual background to each piece, the editors enable readers to approach the material without unnecessary barriers to understanding. Helpful explanatory footnotes are provided throughout, and new sections on philosophical puzzles and paradoxes and philosophical terminology have been added.

Praise for the first edition:
“I would recommend First Philosophy to anyone teaching an introductory philosophy course.” ― Paul Churchland, University of California, San Diego
“This is an extremely well-done philosophy text. ... [It] should become a standard in introductory philosophy classes.” ― Patricia Blanchette, University of Notre Dame
“Bailey’s extensive and informative introductions are excellent and are a great help to both students and instructors. Bailey’s choice of readings along with his wonderful introductions make First Philosophy the best introductory philosophy text I have used.” ― Marc Ereshefsky, University of Calgary
“First Philosophy has a good selection of articles for my purposes, and the accompanying introductory background material is absolutely brilliant.” ― Jillian Scott McIntosh, Simon Fraser University
“The main difference between other anthologies and First Philosophy is Bailey’s supplementary material, which is excellent. The explicative material is likewise excellent: clear, highly relevant, useful, easily understood. The wonderful supplementary material makes this a very good text indeed.” ― Jeff Foss, University of Victoria
“The introductions are fabulous; students find them very helpful. Overall, First Philosophy is an excellent anthology for first-year students; the text has made my job significantly easier.” ― Jennifer M. Phillips, Indiana University, Bloomington
“First Philosophy combines a great selection of texts with thoughtful, accessible introductory material. It’s a wonderful, perfectly pitched introduction to the discipline for lower division students. It is always my first choice when I’m teaching ‘Intro.’” ― Shannon Dea, University of Waterloo
