This textbook presents excerpts from the writings of philosophers, paired with commentary, biographical stories, and notes reflecting the connection between their ideas and the contemporary world. Chapters focus on specific thinkers representative of the various philosophical movements, arranged in roughly chronological order. Each argument, movement, and individual thinker is placed in its historic context, and treated as a part of a larger search for wisdom. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
