Review

"Cottingham does a good job." (Times Higher Education Supplement)

From the Back Cover

Western Philosophy: An Anthology provides the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the Western philosophical tradition from ancient Greece to the leading philosophers of today. In 144 substantial and carefully chosen extracts, the volume covers all the main branches of philosophy – theory of knowledge and metaphysics, philosophy of mind, religion and science, moral philosophy (theoretical and applied), political theory and aesthetics. Chronologically and thematically arranged, the readings are introduced and linked together by a lucid philosophical commentary which guides the reader through the key arguments. For this new edition, all the existing sections have been updated with additional contemporary extracts, and two completely new sections on logic and language, and philosophy and the meaning of life have been included.

This outstanding text will support a wide variety of introductory courses in philosophy, as well as providing more advanced students with an indispensable collection of classic source materials.

Format: Paperback
Western Philosophy: An anthology, edited by John Cottingham, Blackwell, Publishing, 1996, 656 ff

This is an extremely useful volume for any undergraduate in philosophy or for others interested in pursuing the subject seriously. The title tells the reader exactly what to expect: it is a collection of extracts taken from the writings of the world's greatest philosophers, starting with the works of the ancient Greeks and going right through to works published in the 20th century. All the key figures are here, together with several that I had never heard of before. The volume editor is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Reading in the UK. There are 10 subject headings under which the writings are considered, some of which must be of interest to any philosopher and all of which cover aspects relevant to a university study of the subject: Knowledge and Certainty; Being and Beauty; Mind and Body; The Self and Freedom; God and Religion; Science and Method; Morality and the Good Life; Problems in Ethics; Authority and the State; Beauty and Art. There are specimen questions at the end of each chapter such as might be set in undergraduate examinations. There are also suggestions for further reading around the subject discussed. There are very short biographies of the philosophers whose works are considered, and a detailed Index.

The reads are intense in the content but if you take your time and really take in the great work or essays they are, you will not be disappointed.

It is a good Book. It was a gift for a relative but he didn't need it, and that was the reason of the return. I couldn't ask for better customer service in all the process of getting the book, the return and the refund. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Gladys Giraldo

Fairly good condition but the content was what applied to my class. I would recommend this book to anyone taking a philosophy course or majoring in it. It is highly useful and provides insight to each philosopher and gives all beliefs.
