From the PublisherJanet L. Binder, Metropolitan State University; "I like this text very much, so any improvements are icing on the cake. As it is, it's excellent. My students always comment on how much they enjoy reading it and how accessible it is, and I enjoy teaching with it."
Daniel R. White, Florida Atlantic University; "The approach taken by this text is exemplary. It is rare to see the cosmopolitanism and multiculturalism evident here in the university philosophical community."
Kelly Parker, Grand Valley State University; "The narrative through the various chapters follows a sensible and naturally developed line. The interspersed snippets of primary material, logic primers, and biographical sidelights are nicely placed. The historical interludes, separate as they are, could be assigned and discussed at any time. . . . I am generally impressed with this as an introductory textbook in philosophy."
William Garret, John F. Kennedy University; "The approach of the text is admirable . . . I can't imagine a better organization than the one Mitchell has used. . . . The strength of Mitchell's book is that she highlights the strong connections between philosophy and religion. . . . Again, Mitchell's inclusion of Asian and African sources is a real plus. . . . Mitchell's narrative style is superb-and, very important, readable."
Linda A. Rankin, University of Tennessee, Knoxville; "This book is appealing because of its multicultural and bi-gender content. . . . The Internet resources, including the teacher's guide, are also a draw."
