Here is material for a complete introductory course in philosophy. The reader is presented with a comprehensive selection of the major classical texts, all accompanied by explanatory commentary and criticism. Each work is placed in its historical context - from the pre-Socratic to the twentieth century - showing how each author marked a milestone in the history of Western thought. Where possible, complete texts have been used; longer works are covered by selections carefully made to illuminate central concepts. Explanation and criticism are couched in straightforward language and technicalities within the texts are also clearly presented, making difficult arguments and ideas easily intelligible.
