Overview

An Invitation to Philosophy / Edition 1

This important book offers a very readable yet thorough introduction to major questions and issues of philosophy. The historical approach is combined with a thematic treatment of philosophical subjects. Discussions of both classical and contemporary philosophers are included within the historical chapters, while the thematic chapters clarify the meanings of such philosophical terms as: logic, ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, and political philosophy in addition to outlining the scope and depth of the problems addressed within these sub-categories. A chapter on oriental philosophy is also included.
