Introducing Philosophy: God, Mind, World, and Logic demonstrates the relevance and value of philosophy within the larger university and in day-to-day student life.
Written for first- and second-year undergraduates, Introducing Philosophy covers a broad range of fundamental philosophical problems and certain intellectual techniques for addressing those problems. It helps any student in pursuit of a ‘big picture’ to think independently, question received dogma, and analyse problems incisively. It also connects philosophy to other areas of study at the university, enabling all students to employ the concepts and techniques of this millennia-old discipline throughout their college careers – and beyond.
