"I find the organization very clear and helpful."
"The author does a good job of offering a comprehensive introduction that shows the links between the various issues." "(The) book contains abundant examples that help to make the subject come alive..." "The book is organized along the major fields of philosophy, with very clear links between one field and the other, and good accounts throughout of how philosophical treatment of these issues differs from the treatment given by the sciences or social sciences. I find the arrangement logical and sensible." "There is a multicultural approach to the issue of First Cause..." "...It was refreshing not to be presented with the standard 'for-and-against' approach..." "The organization of the text makes sense to me. It takes a problem-based approach and casts it into a more narrative structure. I think this gives the book more continuity than most comparable texts have."
"I like the author's idea of presenting philosophy in connected fashion (as a progressive 'story')..." "...This author's treatment of epistemology is the best I have seen in an Intro text. The author does not get bogged down in the details and picky arguments that lose students, and presents this material in a way that makes it 'relevant'." "The text is readable, the selections from primary sources are well-chosen..."
"The design of the text is holistic and elegant."
