From the Publisher:

More than 75 thought experiments describe the possible situations in which a particular theory should hold but doesn't, forcing students to examine both the thought experiment and the theory for flaws.
A coherent theoretical framework aids students in their understanding of contemporary and traditional philosophical problems.
A selection of classic and contemporary readings at the end of each chapter provides context for the philosophical theories and thought experiments. Each set of readings concludes with a piece of fiction which revisits many of the philosophical questions examined in the chapter.
Chapter introductions explain the philosophical problem being explored, define key concepts, and identify chapter objectives.
Self-contained sections within each chapter include their own summary, study questions, discussion questions. Additional pedagogy includes a list of suggested readings at the end of each chapter and a running glossary throughout the text.
An energetic writing style, creative examples and exercises, and appealing quotations and illustrations make this text truly "student-friendly."
