One of the most concise anthologies available, Timmons and Shoemaker’s KNOWLEDGE, NATURE, AND NORMS: AN INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY features classical philosophy readings as well as short fiction and literature from popular writers, all within a page count that’s only half the length of the typical anthology for this course. Concise, well-edited selections address the practical needs of your first-time philosophy students, giving them the opportunity to reference primary sources that have been thoughtfully edited. Students can focus on the essential elements of each philosophical argument without getting distracted by extraneous unabridged material. Although brief, this anthology covers a broad range of philosophical topics, including key topics in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of religion, personal identity, and ethics. Integrated pedagogy offers an introductory essay at the beginning of the text that provides an overview of how to approach philosophy. Effective Chapter Introductions draw students into key debates, while Reading Comprehension and challenging Review Questions emphasize key ideas and arguments. A robust companion website further enhances learning with self-assessment exercises, study guides, and links to philosophical and other helpful resources. A unique online Instructor’s Manual written by the text’s authors provides additional teaching tools to ensure you have all the resources you need with this brief reader.
