Looking At Philosophy: The Unbearable Heaviness of Philosophy Made Lighter https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/007803826X.jpeg 6 9780078038266 Distilled from Donald Palmer’s more than thirty years of teaching experience, this text exemplifies his very successful approach to teaching introductory philosophy. Through the use of humor and nearly 400 drawings, charts, and diagrams, serious philosophical topics come alive for the reader without compromising the importance of the subject matter.
