This lively and engaging book is the ideal introduction for anyone who has ever been puzzled by what philosophy is or what it is for. Edward Craig argues that philosophy is not an activity born from another planet; learning about it is just a matter of broadening and deepening what most of us do already. He shows that philosophy is no mere intellectual pastime: thinkers such as Plato, Buddhist writers, Descartes, Hobbes, Hume, Hegel, Mill, and de Beauvoir were responding to real needs and events, much of their work shapes our lives today and many of their concerns are still ours.

    " This is the first I've read of this series, but I quite liked it. It was a good pithy introduction to some major themes of philosophy. Well written and a good jumping-off point for further studies. "

    " Not that great of an intro, I generally don't like this introduction series as much as others. "
