9780070159334: Philosophy: An Introduction Through Original Fiction, Discussion and Readings

Using twelve original short stories and plays, this text tries to bring to life the conceptual and substantive issues covered in introduction philosophy classes: determinism and freedom, God and suffering, morality, the nature of mind, appearance and reality, logic and more. In a consistant, five-part format that permits the instructor to choose the order of topics, each section presents a story illustrating the philosophical issues; asks pertinent questions; discusses the issues; presents classical and contemporary readings; and asks study questions. New to this edition is the final chapter "Methodology" which instructs students on how to understand philosophical argument and how to write a philosophical paper. Also includes new fiction and a rewritten discussion in chapter four, "The right to die".
