Philosophy: Basic Readings
2ndPublisher: RoutledgeFormat: Paperback
Nigel Warburton brings philosophy to life with an imaginative selection of philosophical writings on key topics. Philosophy: Basic Readings is structured around the same key themes as its companion volume, Philosophy: The Basics , but is also ideal for independent use on any undergraduate introductory philosophy course. Philosophy: Basic Readings includes short and accessible sections from: * classic works of philosophy such as Descartes' Medititations and Hobbes' Leviathan * contemporary thinkers such as Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett * thought-provoking works by figures outside philosophy such as Jorge Luis Borges and Martin Luther King, Jr. The second edition has been revised and expanded to include nineteen new readings. The introductory chapter, What Is Philosophy?, has new selections from Thomas Nagel, Simon Blackburn, Edward Craig and Bryan Magee. Other new readings throughout the book include: * Jean-Paul Sartre on nature * Hubert Dreyfus on the Internet * Ronald Dworkin on censorship * Bernard Williams on immortality * Peter Singer on ethics.
