5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be without this book!, 25 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Western Philosophy: An Anthology (Blackwell Philosophy Anthologies) (Paperback)
This book is the recommended set book for A222 Exploring Philosophy at Open University. With over 800 pages, Western Philosophy is a huge subject. It is recommended for the beginner in philosophy to the the more advanced in the subject. This second edition includes two new sections on logic and language, as well as philosophy and the meaning of life. Cottingham has compiled a great number of extracts from many philosophical works including Dialogues concerning Natural Religion Enquiry concerning Human Understanding and A Treatise of Human nature by David Hume, Summa Theologiae by Thomas Aquinas, Utilitarianism and Liberty by John Stuart Mill, Reasons and Persons by the British contemporary philosopher Derek Parfit,'Science and 'Falsifiability, an extract from Conjectures and Refutations by Karl Popper, Principals of Morals and Legislation by Jeremy Bentham, and An Essay concerning Human Understanding by John Locke, 'New Foundations for Knowledge from Meditations by Rene Descartes. It is unacceptable to exclude works by Plato, Aristotle, Immanuel Kant,and so on. However, space does not afford me the opportunity to list them all here. As with most books on philosophy it requires utmost concentration. Readers interested in philosophy should not be without this book for future reference regardless of what stage has been reached in formal study. Reasonably priced and highly recommended.
