"In this one volume is found an extraordinary distillation of the whole history of Western thought. It's hard to conceive of a better resource for anyone who is either approaching this material anew or seeking to fill old gaps in their knowledge." --Robert Pasnau, University of Colorado Boulder "This anthology is distinguished from its competitors by its emphasis on the history of Western philosophy, with strong representation from Ancient, Medieval and Modern periods alongside contemporary work. The book's scope is remarkable--144 entries and 12 general topic areas. This breadth is made possible by each selection being short and to the point, so that not a page is wasted." --James Baillie, University of Portland Widely considered to be one of the most comprehensive and authoritative surveys of the Western philosophical tradition, John Cottingham's Western Philosophy: An Anthology has earned a distinguished reputation as a first-rate resource for the teaching and study of philosophy. This large collection of over 140 carefully curated readings is arranged into thematic sections which cover all the main branches of philosophy--logic and language, philosophy of mind, theory of knowledge and metaphysics, religion and science, moral philosophy, practical ethics, aesthetics, the self and freedom, political theory, and the meaning of life--and can be studied independently or in sequence. New to the third edition are substantial extracts from seminal texts by thinkers such as Aquinas, Machiavelli, Descartes, William James, and Wittgenstein which round out the story of how Western philosophy was shaped. Focus questions and suggestions for further reading now follow each primary reading rather than each section to deepen pedagogical engagement with individual excerpts and supplement Cottingham's robust and lucid editorial commentary. Available digitally for the first time, this edition also features updated links to online resources and an original essay by Cottingham exclusive to this edition outlining best practices for reading philosophical source material. Building upon its considerable reputation after more than two decades in print, Western Philosophy: An Anthology, Third Edition remains an indispensable collection of classic and contemporary scholarship in philosophy for both beginning and advanced university students who wish to familiarize themselves with the legacy and trajectory of the discipline.
