This book helps introduces outstanding philosophers and their systems by examining ethics, political philosophy, metaphysics and philosophy of religion. It will help anyone with an entry-level interest in philosophy develop critical thinking and reasoning skills.
I used this book in my PHI 100 Introduction to Philosophy course at a community college. The book does a pretty nice job at explaining the theories in detail. It takes a teacher though to get a grasp on everything and learning little tidbits about the theories themselves. But overall, if you want an overview of philosophy and the more popular theories out there, this is the book.
