Under the experienced editorial guidance of Steven M. Cahn and Maureen Eckert, PHILOSOPHICAL HORIZONS introduces your students to the central issues of philosophy through an engaging combination of classic and contemporary sources. Placing a premium on accessibility for today’s beginning philosophy students, the editors have put together over seventy non-technical readings, many of which have been edited for maximum comprehensibility. Unlike any other introductory anthology of past and present readings, this text contains a dozen unabridged, fully annotated masterpieces from the history of philosophy, including in their entirety Plato’s Euthyphro, Apology, and Crito, the Encheiridion of Epictetus, Descartes’s Meditations, Berkeley’s Treatise, Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, Kant’s Groundwork, Mill’s Utilitarianism, James’s The Will to Believe, and Sartre’s The Humanism of Existentialism. Despite its wealth of material, the book is easily manageable in a semester-long course. By juxtaposing the work of historical and contemporary philosophers, the editors have emphasized both the timelessness and timeliness of philosophical inquiry.
