5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Primer
This is a perfect primer for understanding philosphy: Both fundamentally and practically. Being in its 8th edition, that is testimony to its enduring quality and contribution to the education of philosophy student. The unfortunate flip side to this is that it still commands a high price due to the gouging of college students that have to buy the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not the latest version. YOu can't trust Amazon's labelling I guess
I am pretty unhappy. I bought this for my son out of his text book list in January. They just got to it and he has the wrong edition. The small and not prominent notice that there is another edition is misleading. I am supposedly out of the return period. This is really unnecessary.

This review is from: The Big Questions: A Short Introduction to Philosophy (Paperback)
This is a good beginner's guide to philosophy. It covers several different areas of philosophy with information from several prominent philosophers. I don't really know much about philosophy so I can't give you an in depth review. Philosophy tends to raise more questions then it answers I'm finding. There are lots of questions for the reader to answer and ponder over. The book actually makes me want to do further reading and research, so that's nice.

This review is from: The Big Questions: A Short Introduction to Philosophy (Paperback)
Bought the text for an online Philosophy class. Lots of good insight, however, the ideas and concepts can be somewhat confusing and contradicting at times though.

The small and not prominent notice that there is another edition is misleading. I am supposedly out of the return period. This is really unnecessary. A simple prominent display of the edition number with a note that it is not the latest edition UNDER THE TITLE would be so much more helpful, or is that not the goal?
