About this product
- DescriptionWhat is this thing called Philosophy? is the definitive textbook for all who want a thorough introduction to the field. It introduces philosophy using a question-led approach that reflects the discursive nature of the discipline. Edited by Duncan Pritchard, each section is written by a high-profile contributor focusing on a key area of philosophy, and contains three or four question-based chapters offering an accessible point of engagement. The core areas of philosophy covered are: * Ethics * Political Philosophy * Aesthetics * Epistemology * Philosophy of Mind * Metaphysics * Philosophy of Science * Philosophy of Religion * The Meaning of Life. The accompanying Routledge companion website features valuable online resources for both instructors and students including links to audio and video material, multiple-choice questions, interactive flashcards, essay questions and antated further reading. This is the essential textbook for students approaching the study of philosophy for the first time.
