Fifty Readings In Philosophy
By Abel, Donald
This is a topically-organized reader containing many classics in western philosophy plus feminist and nonwestern texts. It offers an affordable alternative to existing anthologies, and its attractive price makes it ideal for supplementing with either primary sources (see Modern Library College Editions) or survey texts (see Stumpf SOCRATES and Miller QUESTIONS, SHORTER). Every reading has been traced back to its original publication reflecting a high level of scholarship. Editorial apparatus includes topic introductions, headnotes, and explanatory footnotes.
