Philosophy: An Introduction to Its Problems and Vocabulary

Excerpt

There are many ways in which a person may be introduced to the problems and terminology of philosophy. The book which follows represents one manner of presenting the subject, the result of classroom use in introducing students to the field. In it an attempt is made to indicate what philosophy is by approaching the matter along three different paths. Chapter One deals with the derivation of the word "philosophy." Chapter Two considers how philosophy is related to other intellectual activities with which the reader is probably familiar. Chapters Three through Six then survey the various areas of study which, taken together, constitute philosophy in its widest sense. Since part of the difficulty of new subject matter in any discipline is understanding the terminology employed, a glossary of terms is included to help the beginning student. For each term in the glossary, reference is made to the pages in the text where this term is discussed so that this book may also be used as a handbook when reading other works in philosophy.

I wish to acknowledge the assistance I have received in writing . . .
