Editorial Reviews

"This is an impressive collection of the most relevant readings one might hope for in conducting an introductory course.

The book doesn't just speak thelanguage of philosophy, it speaks the language of students. What a nice pairing!" --Shandon L. Guthrie, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
