The range of topics and writers represented in these selections give introductory philosophy students a strong sense of how philosophy permeates ordinary life. Classical philosophical texts, both old and new, are included, as well as pieces written by non-philosophers - novelists, journalists, essayists, political activists, lawyers, scientists, and others. Selections added to the Third Edition reflect contemporary interest in issues of gender, race, class, and culture. Instructors enjoy enormous flexibility in choosing from the great number of essays and themes offered.
