Editorial Reviews

Review

"I would recommend First Philosophy to anyone teaching an introductory philosophy course." (Paul Churchland)

"First Philosophy has a good selection of articles for my purposes, and the accompanying introductory background material is absolutely brilliant." (Jillian Scott McIntosh)

"This is an extremely well-done philosophy text. The readings are well chosen, and each is accompanied by an unusually thorough introductory discussion. These introductions do an excellent job of putting the readings themselves in context, and of helping students to see the philosophical importance of each selection. This text should become a standard in introductory philosophy classes." (Patricia Blanchette)

"The main difference between other anthologies and First Philosophy is Bailey's supplementary material, which is excellent. The biographical materials are very interesting.... The explicative material is likewise excellent: clear, highly relevant, useful, easily understood.... The wonderful supplementary material makes this a very good text indeed, which should, I think, gain a large share of the market." (Jeff Foss)

"The editor has selected challenging readings for first-year students that cover a broad range of topics.... The introductions are fabulous;...students find them very helpful.... Overall, First Philosophy is an excellent anthology for first-year students; the text has made my job significantly easier." (Jennifer M. Phillips)
