Simply Philosophy by Brendan Wilson

Book Description

Here is an anthology with a difference. Covering all the central areas of philosophy in sixty varied readings, it nevertheless provides a compact and accessible source book. Guided Readings presents the key ideas and arguments in the writings of philosophers from Plato and Aristotle, through Descartes, Locke, Hume and Kant, to modern figures like Russell and Wittgenstein, and contemporaries like Putnam and Searle. Incisive editing pares the source material down to the essentials, while commentaries and questions guide the reader towards a deeper understanding of the fundamental problems. This volume can be used with its companion, Simply Philosophy, to provide a complete introduction to the central themes and issues of Western philosophy. But it can also be used on its own, as a reader-friendly, text-based way into the heartland of the subject. Features * Sixty short extracts, carefully chosen to cover all the central issues * Clear and helpful comments and questions focus on the main ideas * Approachable and up-to-date
