Introduction to Philosophy Classical and Contemporary Readings

This collection of excerpts gives the reader a good overview of western philosophy on several broad topics, suchas the Nature of God and The Problem of Good and Evil. Some of the readings are rather long, particlarly the political philosophy sections. Although a student of philosophy should supplement a thourghly conducted overiew with additional literature, Introduction to Philosphy is a great place to start.

a comprehensive and thorough overview

I used this book in an intro philosophy course in college and have been looking for it ever since. It presents original texts, plus thoughtful commentary and overviews that did not condense or simplify difficult topics. It is also incredibly thorough - if a work is part of the philosophical canon, it is in here, no matter how obscure. Now that I've found it again, its definitely going into my library as a standard reference text.
