Summary

Featuring its own cast of characters, a personal and accessible tone, and carefully crafted in step-by-step units, this book sets a new standard of clarity for presenting the subject matter. Extensively class-tested, the text uses an enormous number of everyday examples and exercises to illuminate key points and ideas. It is the only text in philosophy in which students work with cartoons to convert the non-verbal into arguments and arrive at conceptual understanding.

  • 150 cartoon illustrations drawn specifically to illustrate the ideas, examples, and exercises.
  • Bite-size units of learning in each of the fifteen chapters foster mastery and self-learning.
  • One thousand examples and exercises in the text include regular writing assignments and a separate section on writing arguments.
  • Anticipating student problem areas, the text provides exacting and simplified definitions.
