Praised for its unique combination of accessibility and comprehensiveness, Philosophy: The Quest for Truth, Tenth Edition, provides an excellent selection of ninety-five classical and contemporary readings--on twenty key problems in philosophy--carefully organized so that they present pro/con dialogues that allow students to compare and contrast the philosophers' positions.

Each of the readings is accompanied by study questions, end-of-reading reflective questions, and an individual introduction featuring a biographical sketch of the philosopher. A tutorial on logic and argument, a time line, boldfaced key terms, a detailed glossary, and an appendix on reading and writing philosophy papers further enhance the text's pedagogical value. In addition, each major section opens with a substantial introduction and ends with a short bibliography.

Review:


"Philosophy: The Quest for Truth is simply superb. It is clearly one of the best--if not the best--introductory philosophy texts available today. Its greatest strengths are its clarity, its commitment to conveying the relevance of philosophy, its logic excursus, and its comprehensiveness. Pojman was, and Vaughn is, a master at accessible, clear, engaging writing for introductory students. And the pedagogical features are superb."--Mark Piper, James Madison University


"This is an impressive collection of the most relevant readings one might hope for in conducting an introductory course. Students fearful of philosophy will have their prejudice ruptured upon seeing the relevant and enjoyable topics covered in this anthology. The book doesn't just speak the language of philosophy, it speaks the language of students. What a nice pairing!"--Shandon L. Guthrie, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
