Nigel Warburton brings philosophy to life with an imaginative selection of philosophical writings on key topics. Philosophy: Basic Readings is the ideal introduction to some of the most accessible and thought-provoking pieces in philosophy, both contemporary and classic.
The second edition of Philosophy: Basic Readings has been expanded to include new pieces in each major area of philosophy:
* What is philosophy?
* Right and wrong
* The external world
The readings in Philosophy: Basic Readings complement the chapters in Philosophy: The Basics (4th edition 2004).
Nigel Warburton is the author of the bestsellers Philosophy: The Basics (4th edition), Thinking from A-Z (2nd edition), Philosophy: The Classics (2nd edition) and The Art Question, all published by Routledge. He is a senior lecturer at The Open University
