Empower students to think critically about philosophy

The Philosopher's Way: Thinking Critically About Profound Ideas inspires students to think like philosophers, helping them to become more accomplished critical thinkers and to develop the analytical tools needed to think philosophically about important issues. The text is comprised of readings from major philosophical texts, which are accompanied by commentary from author John Chaffee to guide students in their understanding of the topics. Organized by questions central to the main branches of philosophy, The Philosopher’s Way examines the ideas of philosophers past and present.
