Overview

ON PHILOSOPHY challenges and stimulates its readers to identify and deliberate about crucial philosophical issues. The book deals with some of the central areas of philosophy, such as the nature of God, perception, the relation between the mind and body, and ethics. It provides practical guidance on how to think philosophically, with appendices on critical thinking, analysis, logic, reading, and writing. The Wadsworth Philosophical Topics Series presents readers with concise, timely, and insightful introductions to a variety of traditional and contemporary philosophical subjects. With this series edited by Robert Talisse of Vanderbilt University, philosophy students will be able to discover the richness of philosophical inquiry across a wide array of concepts, including hallmark philosophical themes and topics typically underrepresented in mainstream philosophy publishing. Written by a distinguished list of scholars who have been noted for their exceptional teaching abilities, this series presents the vast sweep of today's philosophical exploration in highly accessible and affordable volumes. These books will prove valuable to philosophy teachers and their students as well as to other readers who share a general interest in philosophy.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thomson (College of Wooster) provides an introduction to philosophical thought for students and the general reader. He argues for definite conclusions regarding some of the central problem areas of philosophy, such as the nature of God. His conclusions are set out as syllogisms, and the reader is encouraged to challenge his arguments. Guidelines for developing critical reasoning, applying logic, and writing an essay are included in the appendices. The volume is not indexed. Annotation c.
