William F. Lawhead
Cengage Learning; 4th edition
This history of philosophy textbook, Voyage of Discovery: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy 4th edition (PDF), has received a lot of praise for its clear writing and extensive exposition. The book demonstrates that philosophy is more of a process than it is a collection of conclusions or opinions. The text written by Lawhead helps students of philosophy to retrace the intellectual journey of the thinker being studied, as opposed to just stating the positions held by the philosopher being studied. College students are encouraged to participate in the intellectual process of each philosopher, establishing parallels between that process and their own cultures and daily lives. The concrete significance of abstract concepts and their implications for contemporary society can be demonstrated through the use of metaphors, vivid imagery, analogies, common experiences, concrete examples, and diagrams. New historical portraits and/or works representing prominent thinkers including Plato, Simone de Beauvoir, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Martha Nussbaum are included in the most recent edition of Voyage of Discovery: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy, which is now in its fourth edition.
