Review:

"A very solid and well–rounded initiation to canonical philosophic issues, ranging from language and meaning to artistic value. This riveting collection introduces complex philosophic issues as well as what is at stake about those issues in a clear and concise manner, making it accessible to the beginning student and the general reader while remaining of great interest to more advanced thinkers."
Enrique Chávez–Arvizo, John Jay College –– The City University of New York.

"This is a wonderful collection of essays appropriately pitched for introduction–to–philosophy students. This book is ideal for professors who don′t use primary sources in their introductory courses, as each article is written by an expert in the particular subfield. It also would make a wonderful supplementary text for those who do like to use primary texts."
Richard V. Greene, Weber State University.

From the Back Cover:

This accessible and comprehensive introductory text provides a solid foundation for understanding the core topics at the heart of philosophical inquiry. Each of the 20 chapters focuses on a single philosophical issue – ranging from truth, knowledge, perception, and free will to ethical choice, aesthetic value, the existence of God, and the nature of the state – and is written by a specialist on that topic. Contributors employ a carefully balanced, reader–friendly approach to these core issues, explaining the nature and parameters of the topic at hand in concise, non–technical language. Central Issues of Philosophy is an indispensable companion to study, familiarizing the beginning student with the full range of issues they are likely to encounter, and offering an excellent springboard for more advanced study.
