Enduring Questions: Traditional and Contemporary Voices 7th Edition

Jerry H. Gill

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1995
  • 640 Pages

Overview

The 7th edition of ENDURING QUESTIONS continues to explore and examine virtually all of the classical and contemporary questions posed by the major philosophers of western civilization. From the philosophical traditions of ancient Greece to the present day, the ways of understanding our own knowledge, the nature of reality, the basis of morality, and social ideals are presented in the philosophers "own writings", a panoramic collection for introductory students. This text has endured since Melvin Rader originated it in 1956, and it continues to stand the test of time as a valuable core book of readings for introductory courses in philosophy.
