Reviews

".personal introductory offering which invites the reader to observe her thought processes as she meditates the central questions." Times Literary Supplement, April "Exploring Philosophy is a brave and largely successful attempt to do something new with the tradition of philosophy introductions. If my first year students had to read just one book all year, this is the one I would recommend." Ross Cogan, University of Bristol " If my first year students had to read just one book all year, this is the one I would recommend". Ross Cogan, Teaching Assistant ( Cogito:Summer 1995) ".engaging, accessible, and up--to date introductory volume...The extensive reading guides at the end of each chapter are excellent... However, Almonda s book has the clear benefit of focusing on issues as they are currently viewed by leading philosophers, among them Davidson, Derrida, Putnam, Quine, and Rorty. Suitable for general readers and the lower--division undergraduates." Choice "This engaging, accessible, and up--to--date introductory volume.The extensive reading guides at the end of each chapter are excellent. Almonda s book has the clear benefit of focusing on issues as they are currently viewed by leading philosophers, among them Davidson, Derrida, Putnam, Quine and Rorty" Choice "Brenda Amond is to be thanked by any newcomer to philosophy, and by any teacher... It makes philosophy interesting, do--able, but without false promises -- or false disapoointments. " Richard Ashcroft, University of Liverpool, Society for Applied Philosophy, 1996
