Reading for Philosophical Inquiry: A Brief Introduction to Philosophical Thinking
by


Number of pages: 433

Description:
In this introduction to philosophical thinking, we will read some essays specially chosen from four main areas of interest: (1) the philosophy of life, (2) the philosophy of religion, (3) ethics, and (4) metaphysics and theory of knowledge. Although our approach is not comprehensive, it is reasonably representative of some of the more significant areas of philosophical inquiry. The readings are intended to illustrate the interrelations between these subject areas of philosophy and, as well, to provide the foundations for future investigations of these and related problems.

The appearance of a new idea can only be made intelligible by tracing the previous tendencies. The history of philosophy has itself a philosophy which requires that we go beyond particular phenomena and view them as related parts of a single system.
