5.0 out of 5 stars First-year philosophers, buy this book!, 24 April 2008
By 
Helen (Birmingham, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Doing Philosophy: A Practical Guide For Students (Paperback)
This is an excellent book, and I'll definitely be advising my first-year Philosophy students to buy it. *Doing Philosophy* basically tells the student beginning philosophy at university everything they need to know. The topics include finding resources, reading philosophy, plagiarism, referencing, taking notes, seminar discussions, and more. In particular, I think the chapter on writing philosophy - and especially the examples of essay questions, together with advice on how to tackle them - will be hugely useful. It's easy to forget just how different writing a philosophy essay is to anything else most beginning philosophy students have done; even (perhaps especially) those who have studied philosophy at A-level. The authors guide the student through each question, showing them how to find and filter relevant information, how to make sure they stick to the question, and how to maintain a properly philosophical approach to the topic. I'm sure beginning students - and their teachers - will be very grateful.
