"This first volume in a ten-volume set in the "Macmillan Interdisciplinary Handbooks" series in philosophy reads like a textbook for non-students—and that's a good thing. Rather than relying on lengthy excerpts from primary sources that are difficult for many undergraduate students to penetrate, this work uses material from disciplines other than philosophy to stimulate philosophical discussions. . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended. All libraries. All levels."
"With 27 chapters, divided up into four parts, this volume is unique in its ability to provide enough information to inspire a reader’s curiosity, but not so much that it would overwhelm. . . . The chapters are written by experts, provide nontechnical overviews of each topic, and all end with a helpful and concise summary. The endnotes, bibliographies, recommended readings, and references at the end of the chapters do an excellent job of providing the reader with extensive resources for further study. Those looking for a basic overview will appreciate the volume’s effective scaffolding that allows one to form a base understanding of philosophy; while the reader looking for clarification or an overview of a specific element within the field will appreciate the ease of access, constructed by the clear organization of the parts, chapters, headings, and glossary. This handbook will be most valuable to those institutions serving lower-division college students"
