Format: Paperback
This book, unlike Pojman's introductory-level "Philosophical Traditions", is not for the beginner. It relies almost exclusively on primary sources, which are mostly unabridged, unfiltered, and only briefly summarized.

Some readers will find this a good reason to stay away from it; for me, as for any undergraduate who is serious enough about philosophy, it is a big plus. It certainly makes for a challenging read. Certain pieces by Alston, James, and especially Plantinga are extenuating tour-de-forces, particularly Plantinga's lengthy (and fascinating, regardless of one's opinion) work on warrant, Christian belief, and foundationalism.

Thankfully, this edition gives more room to issues concerning naturalism and evolutionary biology. While the choice of articles is debatable (particularly Gish), it is still a fair introduction to some essential conceptual issues that go beneath the trite and politicized "creation-evolution controversy."

Overall, a full appreciation of this anthology requires either former background in philosophy or a really good professor. I had both, so I enjoyed it at its fullest; but I cannot guarantee the same experience for everybody.

It is extremely necessarily to have all passages in a book when you have a class on that book. I think it is absolutely ridiculous to sell a copy of a book that does not have all of the "original" book's content. For this reason, the kindle edition of this book gets one star.

"In some cases, individual items such as ancillary images or multimedia have been removed for digital delivery due to rights restrictions." - product's description

This quote in no circumstances implies, at least to me, that an entire passage could be removed.

I got it sort of fast i guess. Can't beat the price though. Binding is coming apart, and whole sections of the book are loose, but again cant beat the price.
