ROOTS OF WISDOM invites you to explore many thought-provoking insights of critical philosophical inquiry. No other book offers such breadth of multicultural coverage coupled with the clear, concise, and approachable writing style that Mitchell offers. Women philosophers and non-Western philosophies are integrated throughout as they relate to the canon. Mitchell uses popular culture to illustrate timeless philosophical problems, using extremely accessible examples of cartoons, poetry, movies, and references to popular music that bring the issues of philosophy to life. This new edition further integrates the multicultural themes and non-Western perspectives with greater attention paid to the Peoples of the Americas thread and a broadened focus on non-Western concepts of reality.
