It is written in plain language, clearly articulated and with a glossary/summary at the end of each chapter. It assumes no prior Philosphical knowledge and is very readable : it took me only 2 days to read it cover to cover. . Great book!
Any newcomer to philosophy could do no better than get hold of a copy of this marvellous and beautifully written book.
This is an excellent introduction and useful to students who want a quick overview for essays and exams.
Thoroughly recommended.The addition of the essay on Rawls in the second edition is particularly useful.
