Product Description


"Professor Trigg′s book is clear, accurate and absorbing, well worth recommending to anyone seriously interested in finding out what sort of thing we might be thought to be." Stephen Clark, University of Liverpool <!––end––> ‘Trigg’s new edition offers the best introduction available to prominent approaches to human nature. It is lucid, accessible and comprehensive. The book will be highly engaging and instructive for undergraduate students from various disciplines.’ – Paul Moser; Loyola University Chicago ‘The great attractions of Roger Trigg’s book are its interdisciplinary character and its broad historical sweep, giving students a clear sense of both continuity and change in thought about fundamental issues concerning human nature. I don’t know of any other book which rivals it in these respects.’ – E. J. Lowe, University of Durham

From the Back Cover

Ideas of Human Nature presents twelve of the most influential western thinkers on the topic of human nature. This updated second edition includes new chapters on Locke and Kant and a new conclusion on postmodernism. The thinkers are all examined in their historical context and their relevance to contemporary controversies is discussed. The issues covered include perennial philosophical problems such as the connection between mind and body; life after death; the role of reason; free will and determinism; the relationship between the individual and society; and the problem of relativism. This is a key text for anyone interested in the theories that have affected the course of human history and continue to interest and challenge us today.

Good book, great price 12 Sept. 2011
By Anthony Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a college student, I'm short on funds, I was kind of hesitant when I realized that I had to buy several books for the class. Fortunately I found this one as well as the other ones at great prices. This one was practically brand new and came with the signature on the inside cover at no extra cost. Looks great and has served me well thus far, thanks!
