Overview

Exploring Philosophy: An Introductory Anthology, Third Edition, is a remarkably accessible and engaging introduction to philosophy. Steven M. Cahn brings together extraordinarily clear, recent essays by noted philosophers and supplements them with influential historical sources. Most importantly, the articles have been carefully edited to make them understandable to every reader. The topics are drawn from across the major fields of philosophy and include knowledge and skepticism, mind and body, freedom and determinism, the existence of God, the problem of evil, ethical reasoning, abortion, euthansia, world hunger, democracy, capital punishment, affirmative action, and the meaning of life. The readings are enhanced by concise introductions, explanatory notes, and suggestions for further reading.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Cahn's Exploring Philosophy is really fantastic because it takes the best of traditional philosophy and pairs it with modern, up-to-date philosophy. It has finally put women philosophers on an equal footing with the men. By using this book, an introductory course in philosophy can now reflect the contributions of women philosophers. It will be used from now on in my intro courses!"--Clint Tibbs, Delta State University

"I am thrilled to see so many female philosophers added to the textbook. These new additions will enrich the survey of articles offered."--Sara Rettus, Mission College
