This review is from: Philosophical Writing: An Introduction (Paperback)
My philosophy tutor recommended me this book as a means to improve my essay writing. Unlike most writing guides it's not full of basic grammar, but instead specifically tailored to philosophy.
Aimed at beginners - those doing A-level or a degree - it teaches how to convey your thoughts in a clear and simple manner. The trick is to not over-complicate matters, and combine clarity, conciseness and detail where necessary.
The book also includes an initial overview of some logical argument structures, a glossary of terms and a quick summary (if you have an essay due in the next morning!). Very useful for any philosophy students.
