Additional Product Information:
In a provocative and engaging style, Philosophy: A Historical Survey with Essential Readings consists of two main parts: the chapters, which study the primary contributions of Western civilization's most influential philosophers, and the anthology of chronologically-organized classic readings from Western philosophy. The first half of this book presents a sustained narrative of the great philosophers of Western civilization, from ancient Greece until today. In the second half, the authors offer a snapshot of the most famous discussions by many of the philosophers studied in the first half. These readings parallel the order presented in the first half of the book. Philosophy: A Historical Survey with Essential Readings also can be customized (as a print or ebook) to include selections from Discourses, McGraw Hill’s collection of more than 450 classical and contemporary philosophy readings.
