Philosophical Traditions - A Text with Readings - 2nd edition

Philosophical Traditions - A Text with Readings (ISBN10: 0534570429; ISBN13: 9780534570422)
ISBN13: 978-0534570422
ISBN10: 0534570429

Summary: PHILOSOPHICAL TRADITIONS introduces students to philosophy by combining the insights of Louis Pojman, one of contemporary philosophy's foremost teachers, with an impressive, yet not overwhelming collection of primary source excerpts drawn from the canon of Western philosophy. Organized topically, this book encourages students to critically explore all of the major lines of thinking and all of the major schools of thoughts that have formed around philosophy's basic fi
elds--the philosophy of religion, epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and the meaning of life. With readings of manageable length for today's typical undergraduate student, Pojman's commentaries in PHILOSOPHICAL TRADITIONS provide straightforward demonstrations of the implications of the book's featured arguments and ideas.
New to the Edition
  • This edition features new chapters on Aristotle's paradigmatic importance in the origins of philosophy, Kant's epistemology, and Schopenhauer's idealism.

Features
  • The book includes a well-rounded collection of contemporary sources (Searle, Churchland, Parfit, Rawls, Nagel, and others), in addition to classical works--including a chapter on existentialism and the meaning of life.
  • An introductory section on the rudiments of logic and an appendix on writing philosophy papers establish a critical framework for students' engagements with philosophy.
  • Rich introductions to each section and balanced selections that provide at least two divergent viewpoints on each subject help students stay on focus as they explore the diversity of philosophical thought.
