    Review:

    A. P. Martinich understands that clear thought and clear writing go hand in hand. His latest revision of Philosophical Writing makes a good book even better. It should be a companion to virtually every philosophy course. John Corvino, Wayne State University


    Every teacher of philosophy struggles to explain to students how to write a coherent, well–argued philosophical essay. Martinich solves this problem, explaining fully the steps needed for a successful paper. I strongly recommend it. Avrum Stroll, University of California, San Diego


    Itself a model of lucidity, Philosophical Writing shows how to infuse clear thinking into prose. The new tips and sample essays make this edition an indispensable resource for both students and teachers." Jo Ann Carson, Texas State University


    Martinich s guide to philosophical writing is a gem. Most exciting, I think, is the guidance about how to prepare an essay through a successive elaboration of a first account of the paper s argument. No teacher of undergraduates in philosophy should be without it. Michael Morgan, Indiana University

    From the Back Cover:

    Substantially updated and revised, A. P. Martinich s best–selling text, Philosophical Writing: An Introduction, aims to help those with minimal experience in philosophy to think and write successfully. It helps students gain confidence in their essay–writing skills by improving their ability to present their knowledge and thoughts clearly.

    This updated edition includes new examples of the structures of a philosophical essay, new examples of rough drafts, tips on how to study for a test, and a new section on how to utilize the internet effectively. Written with clarity and wit, this is an indispensable tool for all philosophy students.
