Philosophers have always enjoyed asking awkward and provocative questions, such as: What is the nature of reality? What are human beings really like? What is special about the human mind and consciousness? Are we free to choose who we are and what we do? Can we prove that God exists? Can we be certain about anything at all? What is truth? Does language provide us with a true picture of the world? How should we behave towards each other? Do computers think? Introducing Philosophy" is a comprehensive graphic guide to the thinking of all the significant philosophers of the Western world from Heraclitus to Derrida. It examines and explains their key arguments and ideas without being obscure or solemn. Lively and accessible, it is the perfect introduction to philosophers and philosophical ideas for anyone coming to the subject for the first time."
Dave Robinson has taught philosophy for many years and is the author of numerous Introducing titles including the best-selling Ethics. He is now a part-time lecturer in Critical Studies and lives in Devon. Judy Groves is a painter, illustrator and designer who has worked on numerous Introducing titles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good general overview Interesting little book that will get you interested in at least one of the philosophers they talk about. Good simplistic overview that is a highschool level introduction to philosophy. Tried to cover a lot in a little tiny book.
