Philosophy in Practice is a completely new kind of introductory philosophy textbook, focusing on philosophy as an activity, rather than as a doctrine. At its heart is a stimulating sequence of exercises, activities and examples which lead the student directly into philosophical thinking and arguing.
The book is divided into three parts, concentrating on issues of reason, experience, and reality. Each is covered in a way that makes clear both the key connections between metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, and the main trends in the history of philosophy. It provides the ideal general introduction to philosophy.
