Summary: Featuring Douglas J. Soccio's lucid and conversational prose and a well-chosen, reader-friendly array of succinct excerpts from canonical primary sources, ARCHETYPES OF WISDOM brings philosophy to life for its readers through the examination of many paradigmatic philosophies and philosophers. Very much a student-focused book that speaks out of Soccio's non-condescending desire to speak to students where they "are" and not where they "should be," A ...show moreRCHETYPES OF WISDOM includes numerous pedagogical illustrations and features (Philosophical Queries, a Marginal Glossary, Chapter Summaries, End-of-Chapter Questions for Reflection, to name a few) to make this often-times daunting subject the approachable and engaging subject it ought to be. New to the Edition

  • Greater integration of technology featuring a new CD-ROM, a revised Web site, and InfoTrac College Edition exercises.
  • A Philosophy Source CD-ROM comes packaged FREE with every new text. Full of primary sources authored by the philosophers featured in the book, the CD-ROM puts easily searchable primary sources at students' fingertips. Icons at the ends of chapters direct students to the sources to explore on the CD-ROM.
  • New coverage of Confucius and Asian humanism, Augustine, Bentham on animals, and new extracts from Pierre Hadot and Martha Nussbaum further the text's goal of guiding students on their search for wisdom
  • The text's improved organization includes the following: Hedonism is now covered with Cynicism and Stoicism; Susan Bordo's critique of Cartesian modernity has been moved to the Descartes chapter; and Susan Moller Okin's critique of John Rawls has been relocated to the Kant chapter.
  • The book's Companion Web Site offers online resources for instructors and students, such as interactive practice tests, a pronunciation guide, and an Instructor's Manual.
Features
  • ARCHETYPES OF WISDOM is uniquely arranged to facilitate both an historical and topical approach to philosophy.
  • Carefully selected primary source passages acclimate students to reading and thinking critically about philosophical topics in substantial but reader-friendly increments.
  • Biographical sketches provide a rich context that takes advantage of students' native love of stories.
  • Stimulating margin quotes and boxed selections entice students to browse through the text and provide rich source material for class discussion and reflection. An Index of these quotes is included.
  • "Overviews" for major periods in philosophy (Ancient and Modern) orient students to the bigger picture. These overviews can be found prior to Chapters 2 and 10.
  • A Bibliography of Interesting Sources encourages students to seek out other engaging and compelling resources for exploring philosophy.
  • Chapter "Commentaries," found at the end of each chapter, provide general evaluations and the author's own personal reflections on the chapter's ideas.
  • "Philosophical Queries," found sprinkled throughout the text, relate current issues and student concerns to quoted passages that precede them.
  • Chapter Summaries and Questions for Reflection, found at the end of each chapter, assist students in reviewing and assessing the material presented in the foregoing chapter.
  • A standard glossary is supported by a marginal glossary, which calls attention to technical terms and serves as a helpful study aid.
