9780072840704: Questions That Matter: An Invitation to Philosophy, Brief Version with Free Philosophy PowerWeb

This book is an affordable, high-quality, invitingly-designed survey text. It is distinguished by its interweaving of substantive excerpts from primary source readings into the text and by its organization around four key questions in philosophy: Reality, Knowledge, God, and Morality. The discussion of each is presented in a logical and historical manner, showing connections, roots, and influences. 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. Biographical boxes, illustrations, questions for reflection, annotated bibliographies, and a glossary enhance the discussion. The second edition is 8% shorter than the first edition and 27% shorter than its 1996 hardcover, fourth edition parent text.
