Review:

"This second edition of Morton's Philosophy in Practice is the best introductory textbook on the market. Morton's approach to teaching takes into account what we have learned about learning and critical thinking over the past twenty years, and the text emphasizes doing philosophy as an integral part of learning it. If you want an introductory textbook which makes it possible to teach philosophy as a verb to undergraduates, one that makes possible real conversation with beginners, this is it." Michael Silberstein, Elizabethtown College


"I find it hard to imagine that one could get very far into this engaging book without wanting to think through, for oneself, the core issues of philosophy. Fortunately, Adam Morton has also provided the basic resources one would need to deal responsibly with those great issues." Gareth B. Matthews, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, author of Socratic Perplexity and the Nature of Philosophy

Philosophy in Practice is a completely new kind of introductory philosophy textbook, focusing on philosophy as an activity, rather than a doctrine. At its heart is a stimulating sequence of exercises, activities, and examples that 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.

This second edition has been extensively revised. There are new discussions of the philosophy of religion, freedom, The Matrix, and the epistemology of the Internet. In addition, a companion website includes an online teacher's guide with resources for students, suggestions about teaching all parts of the book, plus tests and essay topics: www.blackwellpublishing.com/pip.
