“This is one of the best introductions to philosophy I know of. It covers many subdisciplines of theoretical philosophy, is extremely well-argued, and is wittily written. It teaches precision in both concept-formation and argumentation but does not invest it in all-too abstract and irrelevant problems. Instead, it emphasizes on the great issues of philosophy―from the existence of God to the nature of the mind. Even the expert philosopher will benefit from it.” — Vittorio G.
