This is supposed to be an introduction to Philosophy, but just dives right into terms that are not explained. From the unexplained terms a foundation is built and the reader is kind of left hanging without understanding. The quality and diversity of information presented is excellent, just, not explained well. If you don't mind using google than you shouldn't have that much of a problem. I have read other books that are beyond introductions and are easier to read. I am bewildered as to why it is called "Slightly Less Difficult", since, it seems to be more difficult than other introductions and concentrated books.

This text is scholarly, well-written, thorough within its scope, but not a quick study. To absorb and apply all its information would require more extensive study for even the above average student. There are many new-to-most-people terms, which must be understood in order to make proper application to one's life. I have gained some new and useful understanding of philosophical terms and a new appreciation for the interaction of philosophy and theology. This will be helpful as I attempt to live and multiply witness in the Christian faith.

A remarkably concise and comprehensible introduction to the great world of Philosophy. This expertly written book will show how the nebulous world of Philosophy is truly ever present to anyone who will ponder and discuss any idea of value. This book helps you to better grasp the types of argumentation methods and also to determine quickly which will stand or fall when placed next to the universal rules of Logic.This book will demonstrate why Christianity is true, why morals must be absolute, why all gods cannot be equally true - and enable you to find the truth even in our world of subjective and confused ideals.
