Introduction to Philosophy: Classical and Contemporary Readings is a topically-organized introductory anthology. Presenting opposing arguments on a variety of issues, its 84 selections represent some of Western philosophy's leading contributions across five major areas: theory of knowledge,philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, free will and determinism, and moral philosophy. Louis P. Pojman and new co-editor James Fieser introduce each of these areas, their subsections, and each of the readings, providing background information and summarizing key themes. Beginning with theopening section, "What Is Philosophy?" they bring forth a compelling sampling of classical material - including selections from Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant - while also highlighting some of philosophy's most influential contemporary work - including selections fromHarry Frankfurt, Richard Taylor, John Searle, and Thomas Nagel. Now in its fourth edition, the book features Questions for Further Reflection following each selection, Suggestions for Further Reading, a glossary, two appendices ("How to Read and Write a Philosophy Paper" and "A Little Bit ofLogic"), and nine new selections.
