OverviewA great deal of the satisfaction of studying philosophy lies in exploring its landmark arguments. Working from this premise, Great Philosophical Arguments focuses on the debates that define and drive the field. Editor Lewis Vaughn presents seventy-eight readings that are topically organized into six chapters. The readings are grouped by argument into pro/con dialogues within each chapter. The volume is enhanced by a substantial introductory chapter and extensive chapter introductions; essay questions; pedagogical features including boldfaced key terms, biographical text boxes, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary; and an appendix on how to read and write argumentative essays. An Instructor's Manual and Test Bank on CD and a Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/vaughn offer additional resources.
