Editorial Reviews

Australian Journal Of Philosophy
Stamel has a good eye for the recurring problems we see in students struggling to come to terms with the discipline. He has produced a book which would be useful to have in one's campus bookshop, with a copy on reserve in the Library as well.
Australian Journal Of Philosophy - Heidi M. Hurd
This is a 'must buy' — both for students who want to learn how to do philosophy and for philosophers who want to teach it better.
Australian Journal Of Philosophy - Katherine Shamey
Those who teach philosophy will appreciate the end result of Professor Stramel's work: students writing as philosophers!
