This distinctive blending of an original, easy-to-read monograph with selections from primary sources in the history of philosophy will fill a unique niche in the libraries of both professionals and interested readers. Well-written and accessible introductions to philosophy are difficult to find, but Dr. Cahn has remedied this by offering fascinating discussions of three of the most talked-about topics in Western thought: freewill, the existence of God, and the reasonableness of value judgments. Each subject is presented in a form that maximizes clarity and readability. Fourteen selections from primary sources assist in amplifying the issues raised and, in doing so, illustrate a wide range of philosophical perspectives.
