Under the experienced editorial guidance of Steven M. Cahn and Maureen Eckert, PHILOSOPHICAL HORIZONS introduces your students to the central issues of philosophy through an engaging combination of classic and contemporary sources. Placing a premium on accessibility for today's beginning philosophy students, the editors have put together a book of more than 70 non-technical readings, many of which have been edited for maximum comprehensibility. Despite its wealth of material the book is remarkably concise and easily manageable in a semester-long course. Wherever possible, the editors have sought to juxtapose historical philosophers alongside their contemporary commentators, thereby emphasizing both the timelessness and timeliness of philosophical inquiry.
