The Examined Life: Readings from Western Philosophy from Plato to Kant by Stanley Rosen, Stanley Rosen

What did Plato contribute to the philosophy of art? What do Pascal's Pensees really say? Everyone knows the names of these philosophers, but few really understand the ideas at the core of western philosophy.

In this treasury of western thought, the primary sources speak for themselves. Over 35 excerpts from important philosophers — including Aristotle and Hume, as well as contemporary thinkers — offer a solid introduction to philosophy for the curious reader.

Leading scholars have carefully chosen the selections, which are arranged according to major discipline, including Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Art and Aesthetics, and Metaphysics. These experts have contributed a provocative introductions in their areas of expertise.

Unlike other philosophy collections, this book is not a history, a secondary source, or a quick reference. It stands out as an intelligent and accessible compilation of primary source material.
