This text brings together Stumpf's SOCRATES TO SARTRE, Fifth Edition (1993) and PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS, Fourth Edition (1994) in one hardcover volume. It offers an accessible, single author survey of philosophical ideas (Book I: SOCRATES TO SARTRE) and a wealth of primary source readings (Book II: PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS) at an excellent value. In this fifth edition, the contributions of contemporary philosophers, Simone de Beauvoir, Richard Rorty, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty are added to the Book I sections. Book II's new additions include Bertrand Russell on appearance and reality, John Hick on the problem of evil, Carol Gilligan on a feminine voice in ethics, Walter Stace on ethical relativism, Simone de Beauvior and Joyce Trebilcot on the relevance of gender in the assignment of roles in society, and David Swenson, A.J. Ayer, and Leo Tolstoy on the question of human destiny.
