« Thinking from A to Z | Main | Philosophy in the Gallery - Tate Modern »

August 26, 2006



I've had this book on the 'to read pile' for months and picked it out just a couple of weeks ago. I wish I read it sooner as I've found it to be a brilliant introduction to the main topics within philosophy.

I recently studied 'Introduction to Philosophy' with Oxford Continuing Education where the set books are: Simon Blackburn's 'Think' and 'Reading Philosophy' by Guttenplan et al. They should add Nigel's 'The Basics' to that list as it's perfect background reading to fill in the gaps.

In all, an excellent book for beginners that doesn't patronise, confuse or overwhelm. Five stars!
