9780155055926: Philosophy: An Introduction to the Art of Wondering

This popular introductory text provides a unique diversity of teaching tools for instructors who prefer a synoptic approach. The text is visually appealing and reader friendly. The level of writing makes all philosophical concepts accessible to students. The emphasis is on synoptic thinking - going for the "big picture" - not merely the analytical skills, although those are not neglected. The biographies give the student a feeling for the great thinkers who have fashioned the Western philosophic tradition and have determined largely how we think today. Features: * The author accents his accessible writing with cartoons, quotations and related findings from the social and physical sciences, reinforcing his emphasis on philosophy as the individual's attempt to unify disparate world views. * Five new biographies have been added to this edition, along with several vignettes on topics of special philosophic significance.

Review:

"I have found that my students relate better to Christian's material and style than to his competitors. I support Christian's invitation to students to develop their own philosophy on key issues by discovering what "the great ones" have thought about the key issues of philosophy."
