Review:

"I have yet to see another text that so ably exemplifies the methods of contemporary philosophy." – William Russell Payne, Bellevue Community College

"...It was a pleasure reading this book. It is innovative in design and it addresses philosophy in an original and unique manner." – Doug Frame, National University

From the Back Cover:

Presented in an engaging lecture-style format, Elliot Sober's text with readings leads students through a series of discussions on the basic issues and ideas in philosophy, with lectures supported by related readings from historically important sources. The discussions emphasize the logic of philosophical arguments; and, in particular, how they relate to the content of modern physical and social sciences. While Sober's lecture approach lends this book a natural flow and sense of immediacy, it comprises a fully integrated textbook with all of the traditional organizational and pedagogical features, including chapter summaries, boxed inserts, discussion questions, problems, lecture review questions, glossary, and index.

New to this Edition:
  • Significantly enhanced section on epistemology
  • New lecture that introduces the basics of probability theory
  • Writing that has been further simplified and clarified throughout the text
