Summary This book is an introduction to philosophy which, as is explained more fully in Chapter 1, synthesizes two methods: that of beginning with readings from the classics; and that of the ordinary textbook, written as such. One fundamental aim has been to ensure continuous readability; while at the same time providing both an Index of Notions and an Index of Names, intended to facilitate a different sort of reading for later revision and reinforcement. It is in accordance with this fundamental aim that the readings from the classics are worked into a single continuous book, and not segregated into a separate supplementary part.
Contents Introductory : making progress in philosophy -- Part one : Plato and the theory of forms -- The nature of value -- Survival and immortality -- Part two : Aquinas and the synthesis of faith and reason -- The existence of God and the limits of explanation -- Predestination, freewill, and determinism -- Descartes and the Cartesian revolution -- Philosophical doubt and Cartesian certainty -- Perception and 'the external world' -- Rationalism and empiricism -- Epilogue : words and the world.
