THINKING THROUGH PHILOSOPHY

A clear and accessible introduction to some of the central issues of philosophy, Thinking through Philosophy challenges and stimulates senior students to think beyond the conventional answers to fundamental questions. No previous knowledge of philosophy is assumed, and in lively and provocative chapters students are invited to explore questions about the nature of science, religion, ethics, politics, art, the mind, the self, knowledge and truth.

Thinking through Philosophy offers eight chapters, each concentrating on an area of thought that has been at the centre of philosophical enquiry for a long time and remains an exciting field of research today.

Each chapter:
• is a self-contained enquiry and can be understood by itself without any familiarity with the other chapters
• concentrates on a small number of closely related topics
• uses an approach directed toward readers who are encountering philosophical dialogue for the first time
• supplements explanations of important philosophical positions with brief sketches of some of the major thinkers and links to classic philosophy texts
• includes 'think critically!' boxes to provide separate explanations of basic definitions and distinctions relating to aspects of reasoning, complete with illustrative examples
