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.

Format: Paperback
I am giving this book 5 stars because I support it. However - i did NOT read it. I took one look and realized it was too much for me- too hard, too confusing, too boring. Then I put it on the floor in my kitchen and I produced what people normally issue forth in the bathroom - and I mean the solid kind of waste - and allowed it to land on this book. In short, I took a s*** on it. Why? Why do this? I don't know. But afterwards, I felt like I had finally won against the intellectuals. Who is the smart guy now?

My daughter needed this item for college. It was much cheaper through Amazon.com than through the college book store and in great condition!
