ON PHILOSOPHY challenges and stimulates its readers to identify and deliberate about crucial philosophical issues. The book deals with some of the central areas of philosophy, such as the nature of God, perception, the relation between the mind and body, and ethics. It provides practical guidance on how to think philosophically, with appendices on critical thinking, analysis, logic, reading, and writing. The Wadsworth Philosophical Topics Series presents readers with concise, timely, and insightful introductions to a variety of traditional and contemporary philosophical subjects. With this series edited by Robert Talisse of Vanderbilt University, philosophy students will be able to discover the richness of philosophical inquiry across a wide array of concepts, including hallmark philosophical themes and topics typically underrepresented in mainstream philosophy publishing. Written by a distinguished list of scholars who have been noted for their exceptional teaching abilities, this series presents the vast sweep of today's philosophical exploration in highly accessible and affordable volumes. These books will prove valuable to philosophy teachers and their students as well as to other readers who share a general interest in philosophy.
