    An outstanding introduction - especially to logic

    I purchased this little gem circa 1970, and it has been one of the most important books of my life. Not only does it provide an introductory survey of the field of philosophy, but it covers truth and fallacies. In fact, for decades it was the only source to reference Negative Pragmatism, a superior criteria of truth that was developed in the early 20th century and explained in detail by Nobel Prize winning physicist, Richard Feynman, in his 7th lecture of the Messenger Lectures at Cornell in 1964. I have referenced my copy of this book so often that the binding has worn through and many of the pages are separated from the binding and loose. At the end of the 1960 movie, The Time Machine, one of the characters mused about what 3 books to take into the future to restart civilization. For me, this book by the Sahakians would be one book that I would take for sure. Outstanding book.

    An Elementary Review

    An elementary review of most great philosophers. Great organization. However, the book mentions some obscure American philosophers and doesnt mention Ayn Rand at all...how pathetic.
