This traditional introduction to the issues, problems, perspectives, and personalities of Western philosophy is organized around four easily-recognizable "Questions": Reality, Knowledge, God, and Morality.
Constant attention is paid to the interconnection of ideas and their development with primary materials interwoven into the ongoing discussion, always providing for the expression, sometimes short, sometimes long, of the actual philosopher on the subject at hand.
Boxed features cover philosopher biographies, key definitions, summaries, primary source selections, and extended example stories.
