Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for an introductory course for students with no previous background in philosophy. Rose (Purdue U.) introduces technical terms only when necessary and explains them fully at first appearance. Chapter-end questions both focus students on the main points and direct them to new thinking. The earlier editions appeared in 1978 and 1993; the third has a new version of the argument from design and other changes. An extensive list of anthologies that would be appropriate for the course is appended. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
