Philosophy by Jenny Teichman

Book Description

Philosophy: A Beginner's Guide is unique in its approach to introducing philosophy. Its succinct and self-contained chapters make this jargon-free text accessible to people who have had little or no previous contact with philosophy. In this new, revised and extended edition of the popular student text, Teichman and Evans introduce philosophy as it is studied in mainstream colleges and universities. Assuming no previous contact with philosophy, the authors guide the reader through the most central and important questions of philosophy, including the nature of existence, knowledge, freedom, feminism, God, morality, politics, science, reason, logic, and human purpose. This edition includes a new chapter on scepticism.
