Cengage Advantage Series Voyage Of Discovery A Historical Introduction To Philosophy

Highly praised for its clarity and rich exposition, this history of philosophy text illustrates philosophy as a process and not just a collection of opinions or conclusions. Rather than simply reporting the positions of a given philosopher, Lawhead's prose assists students in retracing the thinker's intellectual journey. Students are invited to engage with each philosopher's intellectual process, drawing connections with their own lives and cultures. Metaphors, analogies, vivid images, concrete examples, common experiences, and diagrams demonstrate the concrete relevance of abstract arguments and their practical implications for contemporary society.

The Voyage Of Discovery

The Voyage Of Discovery

Highly praised by reviewers for its clarity and rich exposition, this history of philosophy text illustrates philosophy as a process and not just a collection of opinions or conclusions. Rather than simply giving a reporting the results of a given philosopher, Lawhead's prose assists students in retracing the thinker's intellectual journey that first gave rise to the ideas for which they are remembered. In effect, the particular philosopher's deliberations become a puzzle which students are invited to take up themselves. Lawhead uses metaphors, analogies, vivid images, concrete examples, common experiences, and diagrams to bring the abstract issues down to earth and show the unavoidable practical implications and contemporary relevance of positions.
