Book Description

Highly praised for its rich exposition and clarity; this history of philosophy textbook; Voyage of Discovery: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy 4th edition (PDF) illustrates philosophy as a process and not just a collection of conclusions or opinions. Rather than simply reporting the positions of a given philosopher; Lawhead’s prose assists philosophy students in retracing the thinker’s intellectual journey. College students are invited to engage with each philosopher’s intellectual process; drawing connections with their own cultures and lives. Metaphors; vivid images; analogies; common experiences; concrete examples; and diagrams demonstrate the concrete relevance of abstract arguments and their practical implications for contemporary society. This latest 4th edition of Voyage Of Discovery: A Historical Introduction To Philosophy features new historical profiles and/or works representing such philosophers as Plato; Simone de Beauvoir; St. Thomas Aquinas; and Martha Nussbaum; among others.
