I purchased this book for a college class a few years back, but I still turn to it for every philosophical question I have. Steven Cahn is an excellent writer, and the way he introduces hard concepts is phenomenal. I had no experience in philosophical studies prior to purchasing this book, but after reading a few chapters, I decided that this was an academic field that I wanted to explore.

The layout of Cahn's book is great for all readers. It's simple to find writing by individual authors, and the explanations of these writings are always a great read. This book is great for anyone that wants to learn more about philosophy and the great thinkers of our time.
