This classic introductory text provides a unique set of teaching tools for instructors who prefer a synoptic approach. PHILOSOPHY is visually appealing and reader friendly. Christian accents his accessible writing with cartoons, quotations, and related findings from the social and physical sciences, reinforcing his conception of philosophy as the individual's attempt to unify disparate world views. The style of writing makes central philosophical concepts readily engaging to students. Interspersed biographies give the student a feeling for the lives of the great thinkers who have fashioned the Western philosophical tradition and have determined largely how we think today. Above all, this text nurtures the analytical skills students need to critically engage the "big picture" of Western philosophy for themselves.
