About

Overview

The Macmillan Interdisciplinary Handbooks: Philosophy Series is composed of ten volumes (available individually) that serve undergraduate college students who have had little or no exposure to philosophy, as well as the curious lay reader. Beginning with a primer volume, which introduces both the discipline and the topics of the remaining nine volumes, each handbook will usher the reader into a subfield of philosophy (see list of titles below), and explore fifteen to thirty topics in that subfield. By employing literature, film, art, history, and other disciplines, the handbooks identify areas of critical thought and practice in the philosophical study. Each volume boasts peer-reviewed signed chapters written by eminent scholars, and include bibliographies to encourage further exploration. Each volume concludes with a glossary and a comprehensive index.

Features and Benefits

  • The volumes combine features of an introductory textbook with those of a reference resource to effectively engage and educate the user, possibly encouraging students who might not otherwise consider majoring in philosophy.
  • The interdisciplinary nature of these handbooks provides an innovative approach to introducing the field to novices.
  • Film, literature, art, case studies, and other disciplines or situations/events provide illustrations of human experiences which work as gateways to questions philosophers try to address.
  • Individual disciplines can be integrated to form new and unique areas of study; their sources and techniques can be merged to meet evolving research needs.
  • Each of the 10 volumes is overseen by a specialist in its field; peer-reviewed signed chapters are written by eminent scholars.
