    Philosophical Dilemmas: A Pro and Con Introduction to the Major Questions, 2/e, is a lucidly written and comprehensive introduction to philosophy featuring sixty brief essays arranged in pairs. Each pair answers one of the standard philosophical questions, such as "Does God exist?" or "Is morality relative?," with affirmative and negative responses.

  9. David Papineau (ed.) (2004). Western Philosophy: An Illustrated Guide. Oxford University Press.

    Eleven leading contemporary French philosophers give here more or less direct presentations and exemplifications of their work.

As a collection the essays convey the style, tone and preoccupations, as well as the range and diversity, of French philosophical thinking as it (...)

    The sixteen essays in this volume confront the current debate about the relationship between philosophy and its history. On the one hand intellectual historians commonly accuse philosophers of writing bad - anachronistic - history of philosophy, and on the other, philosophers have accused intellectual historians of writing bad - antiquarian - history of philosophy. The essays here address this controversy and ask what purpose the history of philosophy should serve. Part I contains more purely theoretical and methodological discussion, of such (...)
