It was developed from a series of lectures delivered at London and Boston Universities. Reading it makes one feel like a student at a top university where, for whatever reason, Philosophy 101 is taught in person by the head of department, who just happens to be on first-name terms with philosophers like Tom Nagel.
At the end of the book there is a Study Guide to direct the student to further reading.
I do not know why this book is so hard to find on Amazon. I got my public library to purchase the copy I have just read - their previous copy of the work having been borrowed permanently by a reader.
