Jack gives an overview of the book:

The new anthology by Jack Bowen, author of The Dream Weaver, introduces the important issues and thinkers in philosophy with a strong, academic approach made accessible and relevant to the introductory-level student. The readings include many of the most well-known historical pieces as well as contemporary ethical issues presented in a debate-style format. To balance the rigorous nature of the readings, the book’s introductions, author biographies, discussion questions, and the involvement of the companion book, The Dream Weaver, provide a welcoming atmosphere for students new to philosophy, sparking interest, assessing comprehension, and stimulating discussion. The book also includes relevant song titles as well as movie titles with accompanying descriptions and discussion topics.
